Greenspace boundary maintenance

Your boundary

If you have a boundary which backs onto a greenspace you are responsible for the upkeep of that boundary.

This includes managing any vegetation which overhangs the boundary into your property.

We are happy for you to clear any vegetation which is affecting the boundary structure, such as a wall of fence. This includes clearing vegetation so you can paint your fence, or removing ivy on your wall.

Please do not remove any landscaping vegetation which is growing on council land. If you need to access to your boundary from the greenspace, please try not to cause any damage to the vegetation or land.

Keep in mind that you need to check the designation of any land or vegetation before you begin work on it. You will also need to dispose of any waste which you generate from the work.

Vegetation damage to a property

If you believe that council owned vegetation is causing damage to your property and you wish to make a claim, please write to Financial Services. You need to provide as much information as possible and you may be required to support your claim with an independent expert's report.
