Safely moving stock
If you have a stock crossing on your property which goes across a Council road, or if you want to create one, then you need a permit.
There are hundreds of stock crossings in the Southland District and these have procedures which must be followed to ensure safety.
When you apply for a permit you need to provide information including:
- location and site plan
- stock type and number
- stock control measures
- measures to comply with Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management
- evidence of Public Liability Insurance (to $1 million)
Get more information about what you need to do to get a permit below. Don't forget your permit expires after 12 months so you'll need to reapply.
