NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) offers assistance under certain conditions to repair or replace fences bordering national parks in accordance with the NPWS boundary fencing policy. This is of particular relevance to landholders who immediately border national parks and nature reserves affected by the recent fires in North-Eastern NSW.
NPWS recognises the value and mutual benefit that appropriate boundary fences can provide. Given the damage caused by the recent fires, NPWS has been working with neighbours and would like to assist in the reinstatement of damaged boundary fences where required.
National Parks and Wildlife Service offer
NPWS is offering to purchase and supply an agreed quantity of fencing materials to reconstruct boundary fences.
Please note that this offer applies to the replacement or repair of pre-existing boundary fences only. For assistance with any new boundary fence bordering park, which did not exist prior to the recent fires, a standard fencing agreement is required.
To take up this offer please complete the fencing assistance form (DOC 63KB) and return it via email or post to your local NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service office.
