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.
