Littering is an offence subject to on-the-spot fines under the Environmental Protection Act. Dropping a small quantity of litter can attract a fine of $220.

Tree Maintenance
If you have a problem with a tree on a footpath, contact our Customer Service Centre.  

Vandalism is a serious problem and its cost to ratepayers in repair and restoration work is increasing and always a concern. Council encourages members of the public who witness any act of vandalism on public property to notify either the Police on 131 444 or our Customer Service Centre.

Signs - Advertising
Advertising signs must be licensed.

All enquiries concerning the construction of large signs or the licensing of signs should be directed to our Customer Service Centre to ascertain what building approvals may be required. Advertising signs on a property for a third party may require Town Planning approval and these enquiries should also be directed to our Customer Service Centre.
