As part of its annual weed control program Council will be undertaking broad scale spraying of selective herbicides on its Sporting Ovals and Parks and Reserves to control broad leaf weeds in turf areas during the following periods:

  • Parks & Reserves 12 August – 23 August
  • Sporting Ovals 21 August – 30 August

And if required a follow up application

  • Parks & Reserves & Sporting Ovals – 9 September – 13 September

Councils 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 material safety data sheets on hand to respond to enquiries.
