The changes for artisan food and drink industries were adopted by Council on 27 September 2021. The changes are now reflected in Council's local environmental plan.

Council is in receipt of a planning proposal seeking artisan food and drink industries to be an additional permitted use for 611 Sturt Highway, Borambola.

Following a review of the proposal and the strategic merit and wider economic and tourism benefits that would result from such activities, the proposal now seeks to include artisan food and drink industries as a permitted use within certain rural and commercial zones across Wagga Wagga.

The proposal is currently on public exhibition. Any individual, organisation or group can provide comment on the proposed amendment. Comments must be made in writing, either via letter, email or online submission form.
