Fencing grants for landowners
Nelson City Council provides Rural Fencing Grants that offer rural landowners a contribution toward the cost of fencing of riparian margins.
A grant may be provided toward the cost of fencing, and in some cases can also include costs of associated items such as gates or water troughs or the supply of native, eco-sourced plants for the riparian margins.
