TSRs on the Northern Tablelands
The management of Travelling Stock Reserves, which are Crown Lands, has changed hands over the years. Northern Tablelands Local Land Services boundaries align with Local Shire Council boundaries of Tenterfield, Glen Innes, Inverell, Armidale Dumaresq, Guyra and Walcha and the TSRs that are within these shires are all now under the management of the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.
The Northern Tablelands Local Land Services manages over 350 TSRs covering an area of 46,735 hectares.
The role of the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services is to manage TSRs for multiple users in the common interest of the whole community. We promote a balance of TSR use for production, social, cultural and environmental outcomes and continuously work to maintain and improve the resource.
Funding to cover the costs of managing the TSR network comes primarily from the revenue raised through fees charged for grazing permits.
