No spray register

Our Urban Weed Control Program targets vegetation and weeds on urban streets, footpaths, kerb, gutters and property frontages. The program includes the use of chemical herbicides. If you do not want us to spray on the road reserve in front of or alongside your property you can apply to be listed on the No Spray Register. There are four spray cycles per year, which are based on the life cycle of the weeds and aimed at stopping any spread of seeds. Generally, spraying is carried out in September, December, February and May. The timing of this program depends on seasonal growth and weather conditions.

If you are on the No Spray Register you assume responsibility for the management of weeds on the road reserve in front of or alongside your property.

To apply you must provide a management plan with your method of control for weeds and how often you will do it. Find out about some other alternative forms of weed control here: Alternative weed control methods.

We will inspect the area every 3 months to make sure that you are controlling weeds to a satisfactory standard. If at any time we feel you are not controlling weeds to a satisfactory standard, we will resume responsibility for the maintenance, including the use of chemical products.

All registrations expire on 30 June. Any requests made before 31 May will be valid until June 30 of the same year. Requests made after 31 May will be valid until 30 June of the following year.
