All The Graze: Expressions of Interest for grazing licences

Published: 24 Apr 2024 12:16pm

Wagga Wagga City Council is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for grazing licences of up to five years for various parcels of land owned by Council within the Local Government Area.

The parcels of land, located throughout Wagga Wagga, can be used for grazing livestock.

Wagga Wagga City Council Property Coordinator Matthew Dombrovski said anyone in need of a parcel of land for grazing or for feeding livestock is encouraged to submit an EOI.

WANT TO GRAZE? A block of land located in North Wagga available to licence.

“There are 13 blocks of land with 32 lots available located in Forest Hill, Central Wagga Wagga, North Wagga, Downside and Cartwrights Hill,” Mr Dombrovski said.

“The land can be licenced by residents, however with limited infrastructure available, it is best suited for grazing livestock.

“There are limitations on the use of the land, for example, the parcels cannot be used for growing crops or leased to third parties.”

Any successful applicants will be responsible for constructing, maintaining, replacing and/or repairing the fencing located on the licensed premises to a stock proof standard.

In addition, the licensee will agree to implement weed control strategies as detailed in the Riverina Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan 2023-2027 (RRSWMP).

Information on the size and location of the available parcels of land, as well as instructions on how to apply can be found at our Have Your Say website. 

Hard copy application forms can be obtained from Customer Service at the Wagga Wagga Civic Centre.

Submissions close at 5pm, Monday 20 May 2024.
