Gentle to undulating slopes of native pasture and bush in productive farm area of Weegena. Set in the mid northern regional farming land a short distance drive to Deloraine, Railton or Sheffield and approximately 30 minutes to Sheffield and 40 minutes to Launceston. This 53.5 acre property would be an ideal lifestyle setting with its views of the surrounding country and mountain scape or as a run-off block with a balance of native pastures, good natural shelter and stream for watering the stock. Due to the aspect and position of the property it is ideally suited to establishment of an eco-friendly development enhancing solar and alternative energy efficient facilities. The location provides privacy and seclusion with the inclusion of additional fencing would be capable of being more productive being currently split into two paddocks. This is an opportunity to purchase a private rural holding and (STCA) to establish a privately located dwelling amongst the timbers and enjoy the sounds of the native birds in the trees and undergrowth. Here is an opportunity to own your very own rural retreat. Under current Tasmanian planning regulations on properties zoned rural or rural living it is a requirement to be able to build a residence that justification of a rural enterprise, or land capability reports that support building must be obtained, we would recommend contacting and seeking advice from independent qualified specialist Tasmanian Planning & Development Consultants (such as EnviroPlan Australia - we are happy to provide contact details) who are fully conversant with the regulations and procedures required to gain Development Approvals under the current planning scheme. Once an application is submitted, Council can make a decision within 42 days if the application is completed in full detail, otherwise delays in approval may apply. Please note in order to build on this block under the interim State Planning scheme an application through Meander Shire under the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 application must be sought, This is the avenue Meander Council advise that must be followed to build on a rural land holding under 40 hectares. A Site Specific Amendment provides Council the ability to consider a proposal to construct a habitable building on the subject land with detailed and appropriate justification. The process requires detailed and complex documentation to be submitted which addresses the requirements of both the Planning Scheme and the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993. As such, it is recommended that potential purchases contact a private planning consultant to prepare these documents for them and to give them advice. One of the documents they will organise for you is an Agricultural Report prepared by a suitably qualified person who is member of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology. It may be advantageous to get this report done first; and then base your decision whether or not to proceed with a site specific amendment based on this report. Once submitted, Council will determine whether it supports the proposal or not. If successful, the proposal will be sent to the Tasmanian Planning Commission for consideration. It is noted that the final decision lies with the Commission and the process can take up to, or in excess of, 6 months depending on the level of detail. The current Council fee for a site specific amendment (section 43A house in the Rural zone) is $825. For further details or application forms please contact Meander Council or visit their website.
