Road verge landscaping
The road verge, or footpath, forms part of the road reserve between the kerb and the front property boundary, or if no kerb exists it is between the table-drain and the front property boundary, and is controlled and managed by Council.
Guidelines have been developed to inform residents of their obligations and the conditions associated with undertaking plantings or installing artificial turf within the road verge on Council controlled roads. Residents are required to fully comply with these guidelines when creating a new verge garden or using artificial turf.
Council acknowledges that verge gardens and artificial turf installations exist which pre-date the guidelines. It is not intended to require those verge gardens or artificial turf installations to comply with the guidelines unless public safety, pedestrian access or significant amenity issues are raised with Council.
