Central West Local Land Services has reminded landholders to make sure they contact the land manager for approval before clearing vegetation on public land including Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs).
The reminder comes after recent cases of boundary fence areas being cleared without approval and is also ahead of potential firebreak clearing heading into the warmer months.
Central West Local Land Services TSR team leader Peta Holcombe said approval was still required from the land manager for allowable activities such as fence lines and access tracks on public land.
“Approval is a relatively simple process whereby landholders notify our team if they are wanting to undertake clearing on a TSR and we can come out, inspect the site and either provide a letter of approval or negotiate what can be done,” Ms Holcombe said.
“The whole process can usually be done in a couple of weeks and will save landholders headaches later from illegal clearing.”
Further information about allowable activities under the Local Land Services Act 2013 is available on https://www.lls.nsw.gov.au/help-and-advice/land-management-in-nsw/archive/allowable-activities-for-landholders.
