pests and weed control

Annual weed control program

Posted Friday 01 July 2016

As part of its annual weed control program Council is 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:

  • 1-5 and 8-12 August
  • If required, a follow up application will be applied from 15-19 August

Council’s Pesticide Use Notification Plan requires Council to 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 and 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.
