Drainage Issues

Drainage issues

It is accepted practice for property owners to provide a level of maintenance on the verge adjoining their property, with the exception of verge trees, any remnant vegetation, and any drainage infrastructure, which is maintained by the Shire.

The Shire is responsible for the free flowing of water in drains and stormwater pits. This refers to clearing of sod, silt and verge trees.

Please refer to Council Policy – Permissible Verge Treatments - Urban and Council Policy – Permissible Verge Treatments - Rural  for further information.
