Notice of Agrichemical Application

24 Nov 2020, 8:00 AM

We’re responsible for managing and maintaining large areas of streetscape, park and reserve land, and as part of this work we use agrichemicals to control pest plant species, insects and fungus.

Weather permitting, we will be treating areas in various parks, reserves, and cemeteries located in both the urban and rural environments of the Waitomo District.

All work will be carried out by our qualified applicators to ensure the safety of our staff and the public.

The Council will continue to explore opportunities to use control methods which don't rely on agrichemicals.

No Spray Register - Community Services

Residents living adjacent to the Council maintained public spaces may register their properties as a ‘No-Spray’ property. Applicants for No-Spray areas will be required to maintain their boundaries to control all unwanted weeds to the standard required by WDC. Application forms to register as a ‘No-Spray’ property may be collected from the Customer Services desk, Queen Street Te Kuiti, or from our website (PDF 150 KB).

For more information please phone us on 0800 932 4357.
