Roadside Vegetation Strategy 2012

Read the Strategy and find out about Council's responsibilities and plans for the management of roadside vegetation.

Council's Roadside Vegetation Strategy 2012 sets the scene for the future management of vegetation on Shire’s rural roadsides. The Shire is responsible for managing some 3600 km of roadside in a sustainable manner.

The strategy identifies Council’s obligations and guides activities to ensure that our roadsides are well managed.


It is the intent of the Roadside Vegetation Strategy 2012 to:

  • Ensure that the rules and procedures governing management of Council roadsides are applied in a manner that is consistent, logical and fair.
    • Develop partnerships and custodianship approaches to roadside management through the involvement by community and stakeholder organisations.
  • Support sustainable development.
    • Protect native vegetation and conservation values by aiming for works to be of best possible practice.
    • Stop loss of conservation value through increased awareness of the role and value of roadside vegetation.
