Enclosure permits

If you have a Crown road within or next to your property and you want to fence it within your land for grazing, you will need an enclosure permit.

The enclosure permit lets you graze the land but doesn’t give you exclusive possession or ownership of the Crown road. You’ll still need to keep the Crown road available for access.

The department issues enclosure permits to individuals and businesses who have Crown roads within their property and want to avoid fencing the road out.

You will need to pay an annual rent to the department for the use of the land. The frequently asked questions on enclosure permits give more details.
