Spraying

Council and the Hawkesbury Sports Council have a regular spraying program for broad leaf weeds, including bindis, as well as spraying along fence lines and edges to help with our mowing programs.

In relation to the management of general park land, due to the large number of parks and reserves within the Hawkesbury area, not all reserves can be sprayed for broad leaf weeds. Priorities go to regional and district parks.

All spraying is in accordance to Council’s ‘Pesticide Notification Plan’.

Pesticide Notification PlanĀ 

This pesticide use notification plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Pesticides Regulation 1995 (the Regulation).

In accordance with the requirements of the Pesticides Amendment (Notification) Regulation 2005, Hawkesbury City Council is required to develop a Pesticides Notification Plan. This was developed in 2006 and Council staff reviewed the plan in 2010 and 2016. The plan was recently placed on exhibition for 28 days and adopted by Council on 10 May 2016.

The plan sets out how Hawkesbury City Council will notify members of the community of pesticide applications it makes or allows to be made to public places that it owns or controls. Pesticides includes chemicals such as: herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, termicides & rodenticides.

The Plan which covers the Hawkesbury Local Government Area can be viewed, free of charge at Council Offices, 366 George Street, Windsor during business hours or may be viewed from the link at the bottom of this page.
