Campaspe Shire Council’s newly appointed farming advisory committee has a strong representation of Kyabram and district residents.
Nominations for the committee were sought through an expression of interest process.
Council’s spokesman for planning, building and local laws Adrian Weston said the committee would advise council on planning matters that could impact the agricultural sector.
‘‘All individuals on this community-based committee bring a wealth of knowledge, professional expertise and years of experience that will be invaluable in assisting council to make decisions about the future use of rural land in the Shire,’’ Cr Weston said.
He said council was pleased with the interest shown in the committee.
Three more people will be invited to join the group to ensure all areas of the agricultural industry are represented.
‘‘We are seeking people with experiences in viticulture, intensive farming such as piggeries and new and emerging areas of agricultural production,’’ Cr Weston said.
The committee will be used as a resource pool from which members will be drawn to take part in specific project related to their area of expertise.
The 12 people so far appointed to the committee are:
