Rural Living Handbook Released
25 October 2014
NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson, has launched the Rural Living Handbook, published by Central Tablelands Local Land Services, while at the Australian National Field Days.
Ms Hodgkinson said both new and existing landholders will benefit from the Rural Living Handbook which aims to assist landholders with finding the information and resources available to help manage their land.
"Living in a rural setting and managing your own land can be an enjoyable lifestyle and brings a lot of pleasure, it also creates many responsibilities that can be daunting," Ms Hodgkinson said.
The Rural Living Handbook contains up to date information prepared in consultation with local Councils, government organisations and rural services.
The Rural Living Handbook is an 'all in one' resource of information including contact details, web resources and organisations that provide support to rural landholders across the Central Tablelands
Across the Central Tablelands there is a large number of rural and rural residential landholders, this Handbook has useful information and resources for both.
Information on buying your property, managing your soil, water and vegetation, native plants and animals, weed management and pest animals are presented.
Property management information included in the Handbook includes agricultural advisory services, livestock management, fencing, rates, absentee land management, working with chemicals and health and safety.
