Developing irrigation sustainably

The Southwest Victorian Irrigation Development Guidelines are now available help make our agricultural region even more sustainable: economically, productively and environmentally.

As well as there being a range of values recognised by the wider community for a healthy agricultural industry, environment and culture, there are also a range of legislative and procedural requirements to uphold as part of irrigation development applications.

The process of applying for a new irrigation development or altering an existing development has in the past been complex for the applicant and agencies.

Irrigation districts around the state have seen the benefits of a streamlined set of Irrigation Development Guidelines, and now so can Southwest Victoria.
