Fencing support for flood-affected Queenslanders

Landowners with properties impacted by flooding across Queensland’s north west and central west are encouraged to apply for assistance to repair or replace damaged boundary fencing.

Transport and Main Roads (TMR) would assist landowners to reinstate boundary fencing between privately owned land and state-controlled roads.

To date, 14 property owners have been in contact with TMR seeking access to this initiative, however additional property owners may be eligible.

For landowners to be eligible for fencing assistance:

  • Fencing must directly adjoin a state-controlled road and fall within one of the Local Government Areas activated for financial relief measures under the DRFA.
  • Damage must also have been sustained during the January/February 2019 event.
  • Eligible reconstruction works will be jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the DRFA.

Landowners who believe they are eligible for this assistance are encouraged to contact TMR at cloncurry.office@tmr.qld.gov.au.
