Gates and Grids
Council has the responsibility for the control, care and management of our public roads, however, provision of Council's Gate and Grid Policy transfers responsibility to the landowner for gates and grids which are permitted for use.
Council seeks to provide a simple and consistent process for the management of gates and grids on public roads within the region to allow for the safe movement of vehicular traffic but to prevent the passage of livestock.
Council's Gate and Grid Policy is to be read in conjunction with Charters Towers Regional Council Local Law No. 1 (Administration) 2021, which itself has been enacted by Charters Towers Regional Council under the powers vested in it through the Local Government Act 2009.
Council issues permits for the erection of gates and grids primarily for the control of livestock on Council's road network. Council's Local Law No. 1 regulates the conditions and approvals pertaining to gates and grids.
