The use of compacted sand/crushed rock across the entire nature strip has been found to encourage illegal parking on the nature strip.

Current approach

Compacted sand/crushed rock is allowed to be used across the entire nature strip.

Proposed approach

Compacted sand/crushed rock will be limited to use in conjunction with planting (as shown below).

Existing installations with a valid permit can remain in place while Council works to establish and implement a replacement program that provides a reasonable outcome for all parties.
