The term “nature strip” commonly refers to the area of land between the property boundary and the road kerb in an urban street. Generally this land is managed by the City of Greater Bendigo as part of the road reserve, but is expected to be maintained by residents. A nature strip provides the location for a footpath and allows safe and unimpeded access along property frontages for the public.
Nature strips are also used for postal delivery, servicing utilities such as power poles and for placement of bins. To assist with maintaining safe nature strips for all users, residents can keep garden beds to within their own property boundary, and keep the grassed surface mown. For residents interested in alternatives to the standard grassed treatment, The City of Greater Bendigo’s Naturestrip policy explains what is allowed within the road reserve.
Bendigo's magnificent street trees line the roads around the city providing important framework for the historic buildings and architecture. Several thousand trees reside in the many parks and reserves around the shire. The Parks department undertake the huge tasks involved in managing these assets through regular maintenance and careful selection of new tree stock to be planted. Further information is available here.

We will clear any pipes, pits, culverts, or drains which are blocked, excepting crossovers, where residents are encouraged to undertake their own maintenance.

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of household drains up to the point where they connect into the kerb and channel or underground drain.
Stormwater drainage from private properties must link in to our drainage system at the nominated legal point of discharge. An application must be made through the Building Department for a legal point of discharge via a Property Information Request - Building Surveying Purposes form.
