The Rural Partner Program is funded by the Environment Levy and is about providing support to rural landholders. Council is interested in enabling and assisting rural landholders to achieve a satisfying rural lifestyle balanced with the sustainable and productive use of land. The Rural Living Handbook is a handy resource if you are thinking of living on or purchasing a rural property in the Southern Highlands. It will also be helpful for those rural landholders that have lived in the Shire for a while as it may provide new information or a fresh perspective on how you manage your property.

To help you make informed decisions and to ensure that whatever you are doing on your rural property complies with local planning rules and guidelines take the time to read the Rural Lands Development Control Plan and Rural Living Development Control Plan.
Contact the Bushland Projects Officer, on tel 4868 0828 Mondays or Wednesdays if you require further information or assistance, or if you have any ideas on how Council could further assist rural landholders.
