Murray River Council has supported the building phase of the Barham Abattoir
The Murray River Council says they would like to see the Barham Abattoir project proceed to the building phase..
The micro abattoir will be a multi species facility servicing Southern New South Wales pork, lamb, beef, goat and poultry paddock to plate producers.
In March, the council approved the lease agreement for the Gonn Road site with Murray Plains Meat Cooperative.
Mayor of the Council, Chris Bilkey says the project has received enthusiasm from the community.
"Because of the impact that it is going to have on jobs in the area, there's a great deal of enthusiasm for it", he said.
"It will enable quite a number of jobs in a relatively small town like Barham, which will of course filter through to the rest of community."
"We're delighted to see it progressing."
