Verge Management

Published on Monday, 29 May 2023 at 2:19:14 PM

Our officers often receive customer service requests or questions surrounding the topic of verges.

Road verges are public land and serve a variety of important functions such as providing space for service infrastructure (drainage, paths, power, communications, etc). They also provide useable space and amenity for the public and adjacent landowners. The Shire, service providers, general public, and residents therefore all share an interest in verges. With the potentially conflicting use and expectations of these stakeholders, it is important to have clear guidelines and rules regarding verge use, development, and management.

In the interest of providing the public with answers to these questions, as well as other helpful information, we now have a dedicated space on our website specifically for this. 
The page also includes a link to our Verge policy and helpful downloadable fact sheets
