The verge is the piece of land between the property boundary and the road, and is controlled by the Town.
We encourage residents to maintain a verge that is safe, aesthetic and waterwise.
Our Road and Verges - Landscaping and Maintenance Policy provides guidelines on how to develop your verge.
You may be required to modify your verge if it does not comply with the policy, or is safety risk.
