    Signage will be displayed whilst these works are occurring.

    The City undertakes environmental weed control to improve biodiversity values and to reduce the negative impacts environmental weeds cause to the ecosystems, for example they compete with native plants, thereby reducing the species and diversity for both flora and fauna.

    Environmental weeds cause erosion, alter water availability, change soil nutrients, increase the likelihood of bush fires and change the vegetation communities within bushland areas.
