Verge and Landscaping
Verge (nature strips) remain the property and responsibility of the Shire of Chittering. Prior to any works commencing on any verge (nature strip) written approval is required from council.
The Verge Development Protocol is a "living" document - this means that the requirements of the protocol will evolve over time as our understanding of the issues involved with the design, construction and maintenance of sustainable verges in Chittering grows.
Submission of an application for "Verge Development - Landscaping your verge" is required for all landscaping on verges with the Shire of Chittering.
For other works on verges including vehicle access (driveways / crossovers), stormwater discharge, kerb works, and other minor construction works please contact the Shire of Chittering for the required information.
