And it's called Canberra

How will it affect you?

Long term, the area in NSW around the northern ACT NSW border will become either another ACT suburb or used for undesirable industrial purposes unless we do something to protect the qualities of the area that we all enjoy.


You can live with it or cash in and move.  


How will you feel about being surrounded by high density housing or industrial activities?


What's your chances of making a fortune out of selling your land?  That's right, very low as compensation paid for resumed land is rarely near market price.   In any case the market price is based on the permitted land use (rural), not the potential value for some other not permitted use according to Yass Valley Council.



Options

  • Do nothing and see what happens


  • try and fight the changes on your own


  • join a group of similarly minded people and work together to manage the change that is coming.

Conflict of interest

How do we manage the pressures on the farm land?

The area to the immediate north of the ACT NSW border is going to change.  Traditional farming is no longer viable in the area.   New age farming is a possibility, but more likely the area will be used either for high density housing or undesirable industrial activities if we don't do something now to stop it.


The question is whether enough people care about what that change will be like and when it will occur.


Presumably you moved to the area because of the qualities of the area.  Qualities such as the rural character of the area, larger lot size and access to Canberra's services and employment.


Do you care if these qualities are lost?




A United Front

You will need to join forces with others who are in a similar position if you want to have some control over the changes that are coming.
