ALERT: deadline 7 July 17!!
The Local Land Services is asking for your opinion on the values of Travelling Stock Reserves.  I can't over stress the importance of your input into those process to prevent TSRs with conservation, cultural, educational or recreation value being handed back to the Lands Dept. for possible disposal.

A public consultation paper has been released with input sought from the community.

Read through the consultation paper and the discussion points raised and have your say on 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.
