Semi-Trailer Farm Gate Access Scheme
Provides exemptions for eligible heavy vehicles to access council roads within approved areas without Permit.
Farm Gate Access is a joint NSW Government, local council and industry initiative designed to improve freight productivity by connecting first and last mile journeys to the farm gate. Farm Gate Access introduces conditional area-wide access for Higher Productivity Vehicles (HPV) transporting grain and livestock on council roads in participating council areas. The initiative includes the Farm Gate Network provision added to the existing NSW Livestock Loading Scheme (LLS) and the NSW Grain Harvest Management Scheme (GHMS) and a series of tools and services to support NSW council's making heavy vehicle access decisions.
Transport operators must conform with the requirements specified within the NSW Class 3 Livestock Transportation Exemption Notice or the NSW Class 3 Grain Harvest Management Scheme Mass Exemption Notice
