Farmers worker accommodation amendments

Farmers in Victoria's north-west can now consider worker accommodation on their properties without needing a planning permit.

The state govenrment's amended a provision which now exempts farm businesses from needing a planning approval process for building a place for less than ten people.

It says it'll help producers provide suitable on-farm accommodation for seasonal workers without the workforce needing to find places to stay in nearby towns.
