You will require this permit if you intend to graze livestock on a travelling stock reserve or public road. A travelling stock reserve is any route or land set aside for travelling stock, including a stock watering place.
There are two types of permit:
- Grazing stock permit: generally issued to the landholder adjoining an enclosed travelling stock reserve for use over an extended period. It is a condition of this permit that travelling stock are still permitted to access the reserve.
- Roadside grazing stock permit: generally issued for a short period of time over a specific section of road in times of drought or for hazard reduction. This permit is also issued to the landholder adjoining the area as there are no watering facilities and so stock is moved back to the property at night.
Please be aware that NSW is divided into 11 regions. Each region has a regional office which is responsible for the management of travelling stock reserves in its area.
Please consult your regional office for more information.
