When we will take action
Where a threat to public health and safety is identified, Council has discretionary power to issue notices or orders where appropriate.
This means the landowner may be ordered to remove the overgrown vegetation or waste and make the property safe.
However, where the premises are considered unsightly and not a public health and safety risk, Council generally declines to become involved unless it is deemed to contravene the Grey District Council Amenity Protection Bylaw. It becomes a matter for the owners to resolve between themselves.
