Claims against Council



Council requires evidence from a claimant before considering a claim for reimbursement of any costs associated with damage to private infrastructure alleged to have been caused by trees located on Council controlled property (public land).


Council maintains an 800 kilometre road network within its Local Government Area. Council conducts regular inspections of the road network and is continually assessing damaged areas and prioritising repair work.
