The investigation includes a review of the existing subdivision, land ownership and land use patterns in the area, an assessment of the suitability of the land for commercial agriculture, and provides recommendations regarding the most suitable planning tools to manage this area into the future.

The investigation recommends that, although the land may have been subject to fragmentation, no change of planning policy is required to manage the Trewins Road, Tallygaroopna area into the future.

The recommendations of this document will be included in the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme as part of a future planning scheme amendment.
