Roadside spraying

Council currently maintains over 1350km of urban and rural roads. The vegetation along this road network is routinely maintained by Council with maintenance works conducted according to the adopted routine works programme which includes mowing, slashing and weed spraying.

Council regularly receives customer queries and requests regarding vegetation management across our Local Government Area (LGA). To assist both customers and staff, Council has developed a Draft Roadside Vegetation Management Policy, which sets out Council’s position on vegetation management and applies to all vegetation within the sealed and unsealed road network, including associated stormwater management systems.

The main elements of the Draft Policy relate to:

  • Scope and Asset Classifications
  • Management Principles
  • Levels of Service
  • Responsibilities and Authorities

Council, at its meeting on 6 May 2020 resolved to place the Draft Roadside Vegetation Management Policy on public exhibition. During the exhibition period, all interested persons are encouraged to view the Draft Policy and provide written comments. All comments received will be reported to a future Council meeting for consideration before a final decision is made.

Please note, any submission may be made public. Contact details remain confidential; however let us know if you would like your name to remain confidential too.
