The Mid-Western Regional Council Saleyards Strategic Plan 2010 was adopted by Council at its August 2010 meeting.

THE PLAN

This plan incorporates all previous Saleyard Strategic Plans.

The prime objective of Council in the management of the saleyards is to provide and plan for infrastructure that allows safe, convenient and viable transactions of stock in the local area. The achievement of this objective is constrained by the available funding received through revenue generated by the sale of stock and revenues supplemented by grants where available.

This plan seeks to responsibly allocate these limited funds across a number of programs in an equitable and responsible manner to ensure protection of the asset base already constructed and maintain the saleyards to defined standards.

Whilst the plan recognises the importance of continuing expansion, it also confirms the importance of performing maintenance activities on the existing infrastructure.

Due to the continuing drought conditions and the low throughput of stock, no extensions or major capital works are required in the immediate future, however it does identify a number of projects in its 10 year program.  The Saleyard Committee will consider and recommend the project(s) to be undertaken with the money proposed in the budget.

Enquiries regarding the Plan should be directed to Council on (02) 6378 2850.
