Park use and access

Council approval is required to gain temporary access to a park for non-recreational purposes for works within the park or on adjacent properties.

Pesticide Use Notification Plan

The Pesticide Use Notification Plan (PDF, 360KB) has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Pesticides Regulation 2017 (the Regulation).

The Plan sets out how Cumberland 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.

For the purpose of this Plan, the definition of a pesticide will be the same as defined under Section 5 of the Pesticides Act 1999.
