ROADSIDE SPRAYING PROGRAM
As part of Council’s maintenance of roadside vegetation, Council undertakes a spraying program within both urban and rural areas of Kingborough, using Government approved chemicals. As part of the program, Council invites residents to apply for their property frontage to be added to the No Spray Register for the 2019-2020 period.
Visit Council’s website to view the No Spray Register Policy and how to submit a request to be added to the register at www.kingborough.tas.gov.au/roads. Both the policy and request form are also available from the Civic Centre in Kingston or Bruny Island Service Centre.
Please note that all current permits for 2018-2020 are still applicable. Residents with these permits will not need to re-apply.
Where Council approves a frontage for inclusion within the No Spray Register, it will be the applicant’s responsibility to manage the roadside vegetation within the No Spray Zone, in accordance with the permit issued by Council.
Applications must be lodged with Council by Monday, 1 July 2019.
