The VCAT decision against the proposed caravan park has most certainly got tongues wagging about the future of the land next to the Diggers Rest Hotel.
Following growing interest for a market in Diggers Rest, a portion of the site has been secured for the purpose of developing a Makers & Growers Market, subject to Council approval.
In 2010 the “Diggers Market” was a successful pilot program which demonstrated a real desire for local produce sales within the area.
Plans to establish a privately managed market (social enterprise) were undertaken in 2012. However, due to a series of failed attempts at locating a suitable site, the venture was shelved until a location could be found.
Today, there is strong demand for a quality makers and growers market in Diggers Rest, especially within close proximity to the station.
Expressions of interest are currently being sought.
