If you don’t want your property berm sprayed for weed control sign up to our No Spray Zone Register below.
Conditions apply for properties registered as a ‘no-spray zone’ to ensure property owners will keep their roadside frontage and drains tidy by eradicating all noxious plants and keep vegetation under control so it will not obstruct drains or roadside signage.
Conditions for a 'No Spray' Zone
In gaining approval to be added to the Hauraki District Council No Spray Register, the resident agrees to take over the responsibility for:
eradicating all noxious and pest plants
keeping the road frontage clear and tidy (up to and including the kerb)
keeping drainage paths free of obstruction and fully operational at all times
keeping vegetation clear around signs, posts and other road furniture where a mower cannot easily reach.
A distance of one metre around the feature is typically appropriate.
ensuring that, where the owner opts to purchase 'no-spray' markers, these remain clearly visible to the spraying contractor.
If the above conditions are not maintained and the spraying contractor observes an overgrown frontage at the time of spraying, the resident may be invoiced for additional costs associated with the spraying contractor returning to spray the area as normal.

Applicants are required to reapply for continuation of 'No-Spray Zone' status every two years to ensure our records are kept up to date and accurate. The latest registrations were called for in September 2016.
You'll need to reapply to register your property if it was first done before 2016.
There are no fees to pay, but a completed application form is required.
