Mr Bresnehan said the revised amendment fails at two levels. "Firstly, you cannot make a boundary adjustment to a farm for commercial or succession reasons. This could be financially devastating in circumstances of succession and transfers between family members. Secondly, the author discriminates against land owners who own land with a value of more than $1m, in that they cannot build a dwelling on agricultural land but where the capital value of the land is less that $1m they can".
The Meander Action Group is also outraged at the proposed amendment and are claiming that the Council has just not listened to the residents concerns.
The proposed amendment needs to gain Council approval to move to the next stage where it is forwarded to the Resource Planning and Development Commission who have the power to make it law. The Tasmanian Resource Planning and Development Commission gained fame in the recent Gunns Pulp Mill debate in that it was the body that Gunns was given special exemption from complying with.
