You will require this permit if you intend to engage in any activity in, or occupy or make use of, a travelling stock reserve. Generally this permit is issued for the purpose of establishing and maintaining an apiary however, you may be eligible for a permit for other purposes.
A travelling stock reserve is any route or land set aside for travelling or grazing stock, including a stock watering place. These reserves can be beneficial in times of drought, bushfires or floods. It is important for this land to be managed to ensure a balance between the needs of travelling or grazing stock and the conservation of native species.
Please note that NSW is divided into 11 regions. Each region has an office which is responsible for the management of travelling stock reserves in its area. Please consult your regional office for more information.
