To maintain roadside vegetation, Council undertakes a spraying program within both urban and rural areas of Kingborough, using Government approved herbicides. As part of the program, Council invites residents to apply for their property frontage to be added to the No Spray Register.
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. Please review the No Spray Guidelines (PDF) for further detail.
No Spray Permits will be valid for up to 2 years within a permit period. Residents will need to re-apply at the end of every 2 year permit period, some exemptions may be applicable such as, “where new residents move into the municipality outside the cut-off dates advertised”. Situations and conditions beyond reasonable control may prohibit residents inclusion onto the No Spray Register, for example. “Contractors may be enroute to an area and time constraints may inhibit inclusion of an application just received whilst they are enroute or there has just not been enough preparation time to provide the contractor Maps, details and required information, or the installation of the No Spray Markers.”
All approved permits will expire after a 2 year period on the 31st July.
Note: spraying along State Highways (including the Channel Highway and Main Road, Bruny Island) is undertaken by the State Government and is not applicable for this register.
