NSW travelling stock reserves review

The NSW Government is seeking the community’s input on the Travelling Stock Reserve (TSR) network in NSW to ensure it remains connected, viable and well maintained.

There are more than 6,500 TSRs on Crown land in NSW, covering approximately two million hectares.

The NSW Government is committed to maintaining a viable, well maintained and connected TSR network for the future. The Crown Lands Management Review in 2012 found that many TSRs are no longer used for their original purpose.

A new, comprehensive review of the network will examine the parcels of land required for the TSR network in the future.

The aim of the TSR review is to determine which TSRs are still used or required for the original purpose they were set aside for and to determine if they are important for other reasons. This information will feed future decisions about how this land can be best reserved, managed and owned.

The information will also be used to develop a comprehensive map of the TSR network in NSW — where they are, what they are now used for, who uses them and how often.

Read through the consultation paper and have your say about the future of the TSR network in NSW.

To assist in responding to the discussion points raised in the consultation paper, the government has created an online mapping tool to allow you to investigate TSRs in your local area. The mapping tool is available through the following link: TSR Web Spatial Tool.
