Unmade public roads
While most roads are used by the general public, there are a number of smaller roads that provide access to individual properties, as well as roads that have been planned but not built. These roads are referred to as unmade public roads.
Council has the ability to issue permits to adjoining property owners allowing them to use the unmade public road for business purposes or activities such as grazing or cropping and for additional access to their property.
All current permits will expire on 30 June 2028.
Permit holders are required to allow free and unrestricted access for others over the unmade public road.
To apply for an Unmade Public Road Permit, please complete the online application form below.
*Please note you will require a copy of your Public Risk Insurance Policy and a sketch/image showing the area requested.

Unmade Public Roads can be fenced with Council approval, however, gates must remain unlocked, especially where fire access is required.
