The verge area in front of your property is owned by the crown and it is vested in the Council to ensure that verge area is not mistreated or damaged and any utilities located underneath the area are protected.

Approval from the City is not required before any landscaping on the verge is undertaken, so long as the property owner does the work in accordance with the City of Greater Geraldton’s specifications.

Council provides a one off contribution toward the cost verge beautification. This can be claimed on completion of the verge beautification by submitting a Verge Beautification Claim Form.
