Planning Guidelines - Intensive Livestock Agriculture Development


This document has been developed by the Department of Planning and Environment to help people prepare and submit a development application (DA) to local councils for approval to establish, expand or modify an intensive livestock agriculture development in NSW. Intensive livestock agriculture includes industries such as poultry, pig farms, cattle and sheep feedlots, dairies and rabbit farms.

DAs are generally required for these industries so that potential impacts on the site and on adjoining land are managed, and the potential for land use conflict is diminished.

Although the requirements for a DA may seem complex, these guidelines help show how to navigate through the requirements.
