Guidance, information and advice is provided to local government to improve and coordinate their assessment and management decisions regarding the agistment or travel of stock on the Queensland Stock Route Network.
Persons wishing to agist or travel stock by foot on a stock route or local road need a permit from local government. Applications for stock route travel or agistment permits must be made with the local government where the stock travel is expected to commence or where the agistment is being sought.
The Department provides support through application forms and information sheets/guides for applicants as well as permit forms and assessment guidelines for local governments.
In addition; information, advice, interpretation of legislation, examples and training is provided to local government to improve decision-making.
