Gates & Grids


All gates and grids installed on Council roads in the Western Downs Region are required to be approved by Council.

Gates and grids at property entrances, or on property boundaries, provided the gate and grid do not encroach on the road reserve do not require Council approval.  

Gates and grids on Council roads may be approved under the following circumstances:

  • for the efficient management of livestock
  • where it is uneconomical to fence some road frontages
  • to allow property owners to continue to carry out their business
  • to ensure the safety of the public and livestock.

Where gates and grids are approved, the installation and maintenance is the responsibility of the permit holder.

Please refer to our Gates and Grids Council Policy.
