This subject provides students with the concepts, knowledge and skills needed to design and implement a rural property plan that responds to the complex demands of sustainable development. Students will recognise the benefits of physical property planning and learn how to weigh up the sometimes conflicting demands of environmental and economic goals in whole farm management. They will also critically reflect on the needs of the wider catchment ecosystem and attempt to come to a balanced view on the role of agricultural production within a rural environment. Students will also prepare development plans for a specific property aimed at long term sustainability then, in the role of project manager, demonstrate an ability to evaluate technical details for selected aspects of the plan.
