Bitou Bush

Bitou Bush aerial spraying

Weather permitting, Council will be undertaking aerial spraying of the noxious weed Bitou Bush on Stuarts Point Beach in May/June 2017.

The spraying will be done with the chemical Roundup which is registered to control Bitou Bush. This work is to reduce Bitou Bush infestations on the coastline and promote the revegetation of native species.

Some beach accesses will be closed for a short period of time while the works are taking place. Council apologises for any inconvenience resulting from this necessary work.

A map indicating where spraying will be undertaken is available on Council’s website.

If you have any concerns, or for further information, please contact Customer Services on 6566 3200

Fatality Free Friday

Fatality Free Friday is on Friday 26 May. Since its inception in 2007, the Fatality Free Friday campaign has continued to expand its operation and is now recognised as Australia’s only national community-based road safety program. But the campaign is more than just a single day. Whilst the target is to have a fatality free Friday, we are aiming for a longer term community change.

Join forces to beat road trauma and take the pledge for Fatality Free Friday by promising to:
