[Reporter Xie Jieyu/Report from Nantou] Dalun Mountain in Lugu Township, Nantou County is not only a scenic spot to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the sea of clouds, but also stretches to a small half-day leisure agricultural area composed of the three villages of Zhulin, Zhufeng, and Heya. The area of tea trees planted is more than 500 hectares , is a very important high-mountain tea area in the township, but under the central land policy plan, it is all designated as a land conservation area, which has caused panic, panic and anger among the local people. At present, a self-rescue meeting is actively organized, and the county government hopes It can also stand on the same front as the farmers and fight for the central government.
Lin Jianxing, Director-General of the Xiaobantian Leisure Agriculture Area Development Association of Lugu Township, pointed out that the serious discrepancy between the central land planning and public opinion is not limited to Lugu Township, and the other 12 townships and cities in the county are more or less facing similar difficulties .

According to the regulations currently announced by the government as a conservation area, the Dalun Mountain and Xiaobantian areas may not be able to plant tea trees for tea production and use in the future, and they will not be able to obtain the tea production traceability certificate and production history promoted by the government, which will seriously affect the rights and interests of farmers. economy.
However, according to the information provided by the farmers, the inner bark section and the small half-day section of Dalun Mountain are designated as agricultural and pastoral land, and the State-owned Property Bureau leases farmers according to the farmland lease contract, and the annual rent per hectare is about 10,000 yuan. This is the best evidence that it has been recognized as arable land. Why does the Ministry of the Interior still designate this section of arable land as a conservation area?
Lin Jianxing said that at present, relevant units including the Lugu Township Representatives Association, the Lugu Township Ginkgo Forest Protection and Road Improvement Association, the Xiaobantian Leisure Agriculture Area Development Association, the Zhulin Community Development Association, and the Zhufeng Community Development Association have also sent letters to Nantou The county government expressed its desire to change and reclassify the above-mentioned conservation areas as agricultural development areas, so as to facilitate local agricultural development.
As for Shima Park, which is famous for its cherry blossom viewing, the surrounding businesses are also designated as an agricultural development area, which will not be able to divide the land according to the needs of use, which may cause more land disputes and troubles. I also hope that it can be adjusted and rezoned as urban and rural areas Development area to quell public grievances.
Nantou County Government said it attaches great importance to the voices of local people, but because the public exhibition period lasted from December 1st last year to January 2nd this year, after holding public hearings during the period, many people reported that although they had already attended the public hearings , but it is still difficult to fully understand the information related to the national land plan, and because the population of Nantou is seriously aging, the elderly are often not familiar with the information system query. For issues related to use control, the county government decided to continue the second echelon of consultation services, with a total of 7 sessions, and the public is welcome to use it more.
