Livestock Control

All stock owners must ensure that fences and gates are in good repair and to a standard capable of containing the type of stock normally held on the property.

Owners of stock that wander on roads or in public places and cause or are deemed to have caused an accident may be liable for damages resulting from such an accident.

Report wandering stock

Regular offenders are likely to have their livestock impounded and/or receive a penalty notice.

Authorised Officers will respond to complaints about livestock (such as cattle and sheep) on road reserves as quickly as possible to ensure they do not cause any damage or injury.
