Application to enter closed roads

Vehicle Access Permit Instructions and conditions

This is an application for a permit to access closed roads at restricted times via identified entry points (see map). CBD road closures for the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival will commence on Wednesday 16 January and roads will all be reopened by Wednesday 30 January.

NOTE: This is NOT an application for a parking permit.

Permit Conditions

Given the large number of festival visitors walking on the road along with the number of temporary structures and activities also on the road, vehicle movements inside the road closure during the Tamworth Country Music Festival must be kept to a minimum. 
There will be three Vehicle Access Permit categories for the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival.


This is for access into Kable Avenue from Bridge/Brisbane Street and is for private tenant parking off Kable Avenue south of Bridge/Brisbane Street. This permit does NOT permit entry into the road closure.

Red (Access permitted into the road closure before 10am each day)

This permit is for all delivery vehicles requiring access to businesses within the festival road closure. This permit is also applicable to service vehicles (e.g. waste contractors) and stall holders that require access into the festival road closure.

Green (Access permitted into the road closure at any time)

The number of Green Vehicle Access Permits issued will be highly restricted. Most delivery vehicles will not be permitted into the road closure after 10am. It is understood that some service vehicles (e.g. plumbing or electrical business taking out repairs on air conditioning) and a small number of delivery vehicles will need access at all times. If applying for a green permit please ensure that a detailed reason is provided in order to assess the request accurately. 

Temporary Loading Zone

A temporary festival Loading Zone will be established in Fitzroy Street near the Post Office building behind the FanZone stage. Access to this Loading Zone will be from Marius Street. Delivery vehicles are encouraged to use this Loading Zone and then cart items into the road closure. 

Marshals and security will be at each road closure entry point 24 hours per day. Vehicles will NOT be allowed access into the road closure without a permit at any time of day.

This year applicants must include a copy of each driver’s licence. Applications and licences will be reviewed by Police before a permit is issued.

Access Points into Road Closure

Access to the Peel Street road closure will be at the White Street roundabout (no through access). 

Access to the Kable Avenue and Fitzroy Street road closure is from Kable Avenue south of Fitzroy Street via the White Street roundabout (no through access).

Blue Vehicle Access Permit holders accessing off street parking in Kable Avenue (for e.g. The Atrium business carpark), will not require access into the road closure.

NOTE: Rigid vehicles are restricted to two axles and must be less than 7 metres long.

Applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and the applicable permit will be granted subject to its conditions being met at all times by the applicant. A restriction of 10 vehicles will apply to multiple vehicle permits being issued.

Failure to comply with permit conditions may result in infringements being issued.

Successful applicants not complying with conditions will have their permits revoked.
