Long term permits now available for Travelling Stock Reserves

Livestock producers across the Central West are invited to apply for long-term access to a number of Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs).

Central West Local Land Services Team Leader Travelling Stock Reserves Peta Holcombe said producers can submit an application for a Management Agreement Permit, which will provide them with certainty of TSR access for four years.

“Everybody benefits from a viable, well-maintained and connected TSR network, and these permits help deliver that,” Ms Holcombe said.

“The permits will give confidence to livestock producers to make long-term business decisions and allow them to also play a key role in securing the future productivity of our local TSRs.”

While a number of carefully assessed TSRs in the region will be available for Management Agreement Permits, all TSRs remain available by application for short-term access permits such as walking stock, as well as recreational activities.

Under measures introduced in 2020 by Local Land Services, Management Agreement Permits across NSW are now standardised, and the process of assessing applications is more robust.

Ms Holcombe said successful applicants are selected using comprehensive criteria, which ensures the region’s TSR network is looked after properly.

“TSRs have a storied history in NSW and they are not only important for agricultural productivity, but they also play crucial role in supporting threatened species and habitats,” Ms Holcombe said.

“Whether it’s proposed grazing practices, experience, or how pests and weeds will be managed, we need to make sure applicants can effectively manage a TSR, so our industries, and the communities they support can prosper.”

Applications close Sunday, 23 May 2021.

Anyone considering submitting an application should read and understand the TSR State-wide Plan of Management and the Best Environmental Management Practice Toolkit for TSRs, which are both available on the Local Land Services website: https://www.lls.nsw.gov.au/tsr
