Minister Rejects Compulsory Acquisition At Marong

A planning scheme amendment in Bendigo that would have seen farmland compulsorily acquired for the development of the Marong Business Park has been rejected by the Minister for Planning. This decision was made in response to objections by the owners and a negative recommendation by an independent planning panel.

The recommendation by the independent panel recommended that there was insufficient justification to apply the overlay, and that continued farming would not prejudice the future use of the land, should it be required for a business park in the future. This finding was not accepted by the Council, but their decision was overridden by the Minister.
