Roads & Footpaths

The Shire has regular maintenance programs set in place. The Shire allocates funding from the annual budget towards construction, replacement and maintenance of footpaths and kerbing on thoroughfares annually.

Should you notice any defect in the road reserve or drainage system such as pot holes, faults in the footpath or missing street signs, please Let us know or call the Shire on 9727 0222

Road Verges

The Shire encourages property owners to maintain and enhance their verges to make our streets look better, use less water and provide other environmental benefits.

The Shire’s Nature Verge booklet provides information on using local native species, planting out, caring for plants and Shire requirements.

The booklet includes application forms for residents to develop their verges or request a street tree.

Activities in road reserves are subject to the Activities on Thoroughfares & Trading in Thoroughfares and Public Places Local Law.
