Pesticide Use Notification

Posted Thursday 29 June 2017

As part of its annual weed control program, Council will be undertaking broad scale spraying of selective herbicides on its sporting ovals, parks and reserves to control broad leaf weeds in turf areas during the following periods:

  • Parks & Reserves – 31st July – 4th August and 7th – 11th August
  • Sporting Ovals – 31st July – 4th August and 7th – 11th August

And if required a follow up application:

  • Parks & Reserves – 9th-13th October
  • Sporting Ovals – 9th-13th October

Council’s Pesticide Use Notification Plan requires Council advertise broad scale spraying of herbicide to allow members of the public the opportunity to avoid contact with herbicide application. Council will ensure the herbicides are applied to public places in a safe, responsible manner, minimising harm to the community and the environment.

Council will also ensure that all legislative requirements are met and followed. Council will have relevant safety data sheets on hand to respond to enquiries.
