Land Use Change Diversification in the Waikato

This project has been developed in response to recent interest from Waikato landholders to diversify their businesses through land use change.

This report examines diversification options that involve both the development of part of an existing property or an option which involves the wholesale conversion to an alternative land use.

The purpose is to provide a number of examples of what might be possible in terms of land use diversification and some of the considerations that should be made by a land owner prior to making a change.Given that every farm is different, this report is not intended to provide advice at the level of due diligence for land use diversification, but rather to provide an initial benchmark and baseline that outlines some of the constraints for a range of development options.
