Council puts grower support to the vote

MILDURA councillors will debate whether to lobby for a range of measures to support Sunraysia horticulturists at tonight’s council meeting. 

Mayor Simon Clemence will drive two planning-related proposals – to allow farm land to be developed for worker accommodation and to review Amendment C89, which covers growers developing their land. 

The push for change follows reports of Mildura Older Irrigation Area (MOIA) rules hindering growers’ ability to provide accommodation for seasonal workers.
