Mowing includes trimming of roadside grass, weeds and other light vegetation. This is part of a regular maintenance cycle. Moving normally covers the area approximately 1.5m from the edge of the seal or metal in a horizontal direction, and 4.5m upwards. This is the zone that is most likely to cause unsafe obstructions for travelling vehicles.
Management of vegetation outside this area or "vegetation envelope" - such as hazardous trees - is done on a case by case basis. If you would like to request an assessment, please use our online form.
Spraying is carried out at Council's discretion, and may be subject to climatic and financial constraints. If approved, spraying is carried out three times a year. Spraying covers an average of 2m from the edge of the seal or formed road.
Property owners are entitled to request that their berm or verge is not sprayed. If you would like to be included on this register, please complete the form below.
