You may require a licence or lease if you intend to use or access unreserved crown land to conduct non-agricultural activities.
Your activities will need to comply with relevant local planning schemes, and you may be required to obtain planning approval. The agency will not grant a lease or licence until you have obtained planning approval (if required).
Examples of commercial or industrial purposes include:
- constructing electric lines
- gravel extraction
- water storage
- use of machinery or power tools
- taking stone, sand or gravel.
Unreserved crown land may periodically be made available to lease by auction or public tender.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
