Noxious Weeds

Environmental weeds cause problems in bushland reserves and gardens. Some environmental weeds, like Blackberry or Broom, are also noxious weeds.

Under the Whitehorse Community Local Law 2014 ( PDF 202.61KB) a land owner or tenant cannot allow noxious weeds to grow on their property.

If noxious weeds are found, Council will direct the person responsible for the property to remove the weed and ensure it does not grow again.
