Please keep footpaths clear
Council has received a number of calls lately about overgrown trees and plants on private properties obstructing footpaths making it difficult, and at times dangerous, for members of the public to use. As a general reminder, please keep trees and plants neatly trimmed so that someone pushing a pram or riding a mobility scooter can safely and easily use the footpath. If there is an area you know of where overgrown trees/plants are an issue please contact us at the Council and we will follow up with the property owner. You can contact us either by calling 0800 111 323, emailing contact@stdc.govt.nz visiting any one of our seven LibraryPlus centres or the Hawera Administration Building or complete an online Service Request form here.
