Planning Practice Intensive Agriculture

Topic 8: Planning Practice Intensive Agriculture

Review of a proposed broiler farm in Baringhup. This proposal was assessed over the course of 7 years starting with a permit application, followed by VCAT hearings, Supreme Court appeals and subsequent VCAT hearings that ultimately cancelled 2 of the 3 permits. The proposal did not go ahead. There was immense community opposition with 900 objections lodged to the original permit application. See below for pre-workshop reading.

Prepare draft responses to the below questions for Practicum 4a where you will 
discuss your responses in the workshop. After the workshop you will be able to revise the responses and submit the final version.

  1. What were the key issues that the objectors had with the proposal? How were these addressed by Council (refer to Council meeting minutes)? How does the Code of Practice manage these amenity impact issues?


  1. The Councillors went against the recommendations of the Delegated Officer’s recommendation due to the significant community objection. What were the main grounds of refusal that Council relied upon?


  1. Planners are often involved in the sphere of consultation/mediation between opposing sides. Do you think a win-win solution (as Leah Garcés talks about) could have been sought in the Baringhup Broiler case?  How do we make balanced decisions that support the right to farm but also protect resident amenity?


  1. What do youwant to ask? As you are reading/listening note any things that you don’t understand or want to know more about and contribute these questions to the workshop.
