Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I want to plant some plants on the footpath?
Members of the community who wish to plant vegetation in a local government controlled area or on a road, which is a prescribed activity under the Local Law, must first gain approval from Council for works in a Council controlled area or road.

When issuing such permission, Council will consider issues including species suitability, expected growth size, sight visibility, interference with services and planned planting schemes.
