Rural Living

The Camden Local Government Area (Camden LGA) has historically been known as a highly productive rural region. There is a large proportion of rural activity associated with intensive agricultural land uses.

The Camden LGA is currently experiencing significant expansion of urban development. Council recognises the need to achieve a balance between population growth and maintaining the valued characteristics of the Camden LGA – its rural setting, country town feel, and the lifestyle associated with these attributes.
