Planning Guidelines - Intensive Livestock Agriculture Development


This draft 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 agriculture development in NSW. Intensive agriculture includes industries such as poultry, piggeries, cattle and sheep feedlots, restricted dairies, rabbits, horticulture, viticulture, hydroponics, greenhouses and glasshouses. 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 clearly show you the path through them.
