Planning for turf farms


This guideline has been developed by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to support the sustainable development of turf farming in New South Wales.

The purpose of this primefact is to:

  • provide local consent authorities with a clear set of requirements that should be addressed in development applications (DA) for turf farming,
  • promote establishment of turf farms in areas which allow long-term sustainable operation,
  • assist the turf industry to minimise effects on the environment, adjoining landholders and the general community by identifying the environmental management considerations.
