Keep your neighborhood safe – report overgrown blocks

Now in spring and with warmer weather heading our way, it is the time to ensure blocks are cleared and well-maintained to minimise risks. 

“Overgrown blocks are a common issue reported to Council, particularly during the spring and summer months,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “Overgrown vegetation on blocks of land can pose an increased risk of harboring vermin and heighten the possibility of fire within our towns.”

“With recent good conditions and warmer seasons approaching, residents and property owners are encouraged to keep their yards free from overgrown vegetation to make our residential streets more appealing and protect the community from these potential risks,” said Cr Doolan. 

“With the bushfire season now here, it is also important for residents to ensure vegetation around homes is maintained and gutters are cleared from debris,” Cr Doolan concluded.

“I would urge residents to look out for themselves and their neighbours and clear their properties of rubbish, debris and large volumes of growth before the middle of the fire season,” concluded Cr Doolan.
