Weed spraying

Kāpiti Coast District Council undertakes district wide weed spraying three times a year on the road reserve outside residential and rural properties, with a pest plant spraying round once per year.

No spray register

There is a "no spray" register for the District.

Conditions of being on the No Spray register include that the resident must agree to take over the control of weeds on their street frontage from the road, including kerb and channel, to the property boundary for the entire width of the property.  If the weeds are not controlled by the resident Council reserves the right to spray the weeds when district spraying is undertaken. 

Pest plants

"Noxious weeds" are now known as "pest plants".

Targeted species are:

  • Blackberry
  • Japanese Honeysuckle
  • Gorse
  • Banana Passionfruit
  • Lupin
  • Pampis
  • Convolvulus.

The council does not carry out work on private property. If the weeds are coming from a neighbouring section, contact your neighbour or spray the boundary between the properties.  You are entitled to control growth on your property.
