In the case of gravel road shoulders, land owners are advised that Council does not slash roadsides but relies on the grading maintenance crew to remove grass growth when normal maintenance activities are carried out in the area. Slashing will be done on gravel roads in some circumstances where a safety hazard is perceived to exist and/or when the grading crew is not expected in the area for a considerable time.
In the case of clearing/slashing of the road reserve in front of a property for cosmetic purposes, the land owner is required to apply for approval to clear vegetation via a Road Reserve Works Permit Application. The application will be assessed and any plant species of interest may be ordered to be protected and/or re-established in an approved location.
Work on a road reserve is not permitted to be carried out by private persons without approval. Online Services - Customer Enquiries
