Parks and public open spaces update

Published on Tuesday, 18 October 2022 at 1:54:06 PM

The Shire is committed to meeting the standards and expectations of our community for parks and public open spaces.

The following issues are currently impacting our ability to meet our usual service levels:

  • Significant shortfalls in the availability of staff and contract labour.
  • Shortage in supply of herbicides.
  • Availability of mowing contractors.
Our teams are making every effort to maintain parks and streetscapes to the best possible standard. This includes:
  •  A zone maintenance schedule for mowing of parks to balance current staff availability.
  •  Verges are currently being sprayed based on a priority list.
We appreciate your patience while we work through the current resourcing challenges in this space.
