New zoning …

Since discovering the island about 2.5 years ago I could see that it had fantastic potential due to its unique location and environment.  Apparently the local government is only just appreciating this potential and after some lobbying by the local community has recently expanded the residential zoning to “character residential”.  This means that the local community can legally have some small home businesses and commercial growing of crops is permitted on residential land. These could be small urban farming enterprises including road side stalls or arts based businesses.
It’s a great development for this small community and just the beginning of things to come.
