Berms and verges
Council encourages residents to mow the berms outside their property, which not only helps keep the Hurunui looking tidy but also helps keep rates down.
Occasionally Council will allow residents to plant the berm fronting their property. This is on condition that the resident takes responsibility for ongoing maintenance and either ensures the next owners take over that responsibility or that the verge is returned to grass when the property is sold.
To apply for permission to plant the berm outside your property please contact Council.
