Sunshine Coast - Plant a self-assessable Verge Garden

Sunshine Coast guidelines and planting list are here. (updated 22 June 2022)

They provide an approved plant list. To be eligible for planting under self-assessment, the vegetation must satisfy all criteria at all times. Otherwise, you need to apply for a permit.

This Council is often criticised because of the dispute surrounding the Urban Food Street at Buderim. Those verge gardens would not have fitted within this criteria or the guidelines of most councils.
