Overgrown and Unsightly Land

Owners and occupiers are responsible for the maintenance of their property, ensuring a safe and healthy environment.

A property is classified as overgrown if its condition poses a threat to public health and safety due to the length of grass or the presence of vermin and snakes.

Land can be considered unsightly when excessive materials are placed on the property that can be easily viewed from a public place.

What Council can do

If you have concerns about a property that is overgrown or unhealthy, you can lodge a request with Council.

Council will write to the owners or occupiers asking them to undertake work to fix the nuisance.

If further complaints are received Council will investigate and take further action if the property is considered overgrown or unhealthy.
