development and productive use of agricultural land;   FRAMEWORK FOR BOUNDARY EXPANSION (a) Rural lands surrounding the Town have an intrinsic value that reinforces Cochrane's character and heritage. Therefore, the preservation of these agricultural and rural lands is considered an important planning goal. The Town will promote more efficient and effective use of lands within its boundaries before expanding them. 13.3a
