Council cuts residential verges from late winter to early summer and depending on seasonal factors.

At the end of spring, Council also cuts roadside verges to address fire risks and line of site obstructions for motorists. Council liaises with state government (Department for Infrastructure and Transport) who are responsible for cutting grass on median strips along main roads.

Cut grass is not collected but left on the verge.

Additional cutting outside of this program is only undertaken in cases where high growth creates risks for traffic or pedestrians. An assessment can be requested online or by calling us on 8397 7444.

Thank you

We thank the many residents who maintain their verges.

Alter or landscape a verge

A verge or naturestrip is usually the section between:

  • The property boundary and the road

  • The footpath and the road

A verge can be altered or landscaped by submitting an application to alter a public road (Section 221)
