Economic impact assessment of locating forestry plantations on good quality agricultural land
Garner, Gary O. (2008) Economic impact assessment of locating forestry plantations on good quality agricultural land. Cassowary Coast Regional Council.
This report is designed to provide an assessment of the likely economic impact of plantation forestry operations as a result of undertaking a number of “high value” hardwood timber projects in high rainfall areas far north Queensland – in particular, Tully and surrounding regions. Attention has been focussed on the impact of locating forestry plantations on “good quality agricultural land”: it informs the Further Information Request for Development Application No 087/08 (Material Change of Use) requested by Cassowary Coast Regional Council, in reference to “the impact on the local economy of removing the property which is classed as Good Quality Agricultural Land from the production of food products for a period up to 20 years”.
This report accompanies Development Applications lodged for a material change of use for a forestry application over properties located at Stamp Road, Tully (“Stamp Road Tree Farm” - 1,063 ha being Lot 122 on SP 125442), Bruce Highway, Murrigal (“Murringal Tree Farm” – 761.3 ha being Lot 120 on CWL3059), off Bruce Highway, Tully (“Trost Tree Farm” – 40.4 ha Lot 1 on SP136934), and Upper Murray Road Tully (“Saini Bhella Tree Farm” - 250 ha being Lot 3 on RP800579, Lot 2 on RP742041, Lot 1 on RP748825 and Lot 69 on CWL546)
