If I consider a property to be overgrown, unsafe, unhealthy how do I report to?
Overgrown land can be unsafe or unhealthy and may harbour or encourage mice, rats and snakes.
Not all residents have the desire to keep properties in a ‘park like’ condition and this should be taken into consideration before a complaint is lodged with Council. Many properties may be considered to be untidy, but untidy does not necessarily mean that the property is in an unsafe or unhealthy condition and in need of Council intervention.
Council encourages residents to try to solve the problem amicably by talking to the property owner or manager if known. Often people are unaware that their activity or lack of property maintenance is causing a problem and are usually happy to address the problem after being notified.
If this does not resolve the problem you can report it to Council using the following form.
Note: If you consider it to be a fire hazard please contact the Rural Fire Service.
