Overhanging growth

Trees and shrubs inside your property which overhang the footpath must be pruned to ensure public safety.

Failure to do so may make you liable to prosecution under the Local Government Act.

Residents are urged to prune any growth from their property which hangs lower than 2.7 metres above the footpath.

Your co-operation will be appreciated by all pedestrians.
