Vital to consider agriculture in Character Preservation Acts
Livestock SA represents and promotes the interests of beef cattle, sheep and goat producers in South Australia, including livestock producers in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, and it is on their behalf this submission is made, particularly those in the Barossa Valley. The discussion paper released to lead the review of the Character Preservation (Barossa Valley) Act 2012 and Character Preservation (McLaren Valley) Act 2012 was disappointing as it ignored agriculture even though these Acts are essentially about retaining the farming landscape in these two regions. There is a need for a detailed assessment of the impact of the Acts on agriculture, and the effect on future viability of agriculture.
