Sales permit (forest products or quarry material) - Queensland


You will need a sales permit if you want to remove or use state-owned quarry material or forest products. A sales permit is a legal agreement between the state of Queensland and the permit holder, and sets out commercial terms, rights and performance requirements agreed between the parties. To hold a sales permit you are required to meet safety, environmental, planning and other considerations.

State-owned forest products and quarry material are located on state forest and timber reserves. For forest products, this includes leased land and freehold land where a forest consent area and forest entitlement area has been established. For quarry materials, this includes leased land (including tidal waters) and freehold land where the ownership has been retained through a reservation on a deed of grant.

Please contact the agency for more information.
