Council maintains over 60 parks and reserves and thousands of trees. Pesticides may be used as part of an Integrated Management Plan to treat weeds, pathogens or pests such as termites. Any pesticide application is carried out by appropriately trained personal according to all government legislative requirements.

Council has adopted a Pesticide Use Notification PlanThe aim of this plan is to meet the community’s general right to know about pesticide applications made to outdoor public places that are owned or controlled by public authorities. The plan allows members of the community to take action to avoid contact with pesticides, if they wish.

If you have any concerns prior to, or during the control program, please contact Council on 9748 9999 or on email
