Cape Nelson feedlot decision extended to 2019
A DECISION on a controversial feedlot (livestock assembly depot) proposal at Cape Nelson may not be known until mid-2019 after extensions were given to the proponent and the Glenelg Shire Council.
Feedlot operator Phillip King is planning to expand his operations by using 167 hectares of land owned by his company Goolagar Pty Ltd, opposite his Kobo feedlot, to be used as a holding area for up to 14,000 cattle per shipment or 140,000 cattle a year for export to China.
It requires an amendment to the shire’s planning scheme if it is to proceed.
The amendment C86 was first put on exhibition in October 2015.
The panel chairman appointed by Planning Panels Victoria to hear submissions and make recommendations on the amendment Michael Kirsch recently wrote to parties involved in the proposed amendment.
