The Audit provides information for local government to support the long-term viability of agriculture by enabling increased production.

Local government can access a variety of information in the Audit including socio-economic data, overlapping land uses, infrastructure and other opportunities and constraints for agricultural development.

This information can be used to enable local government to better identify and plan for agriculture as part of both statutory and non-statutory settings.
