These guidelines are intended to improve the quality of rabbit farming development applications to councils, to assist councils in the evaluation of proposals and to encourage greater consistency in the planning and development controls in relation to rabbit farming.
The guidelines will assist prospective rabbit producers in preparing their development applications for approval by the relevant consent authority. As the guidelines provide general advice only, producers should check with their local councils as to any specific environmental requirements for their particular rabbit farm proposal.
Some background to the rabbit farming industry is included in the guidelines; however, animal management and production details are not covered.
