Not too late to have your say on TSRs

Media release | 13 June 2017

Minister for Lands and Forestry Paul Toole has extended the deadline for the NSW Government’s review of the Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs) network.

Mr Toole said it’s important members of the community have their say on the review before consultation closes on 7 July 2017.

“The information we gather will help create a comprehensive map of the 6,500 TSRs across the state so we can understand the current and future needs of the TSR network,” Mr Toole said.

“The review is not about a sell off of TSRs, it’s about maintaining a viable, well maintained and connected TSR network for the future.

“The submissions and feedback we receive will help inform future decisions on how to best protect and manage Crown land for its current and future use.”

Minister for Primary Industries Niall Blair said the review allows the community to have input into the future of the network by identifying where they are, what they are used for, who uses them and how often they are used.

“I strongly encourage livestock producers, landowners and other interested members of the community to read through the public consultation paper and make a submission on the future of the TSR network in NSW,” Mr Blair said.
