A Council truck full of wood from trees cleared after recent storms in Brimbank.

Storm clean-up update

We understand there is growing frustration among residents who have noticed the significant grass growth across our city, and who are waiting for fallen branches to be cleared from last month’s storm.

We are working around the clock to complete the clean-up and to get on top of our routine mowing and weed management program.

Since the storm, staff from departments across Council have been pitching in to help remove branches safely.

All dangerous trees have been removed and others with non-urgent structural damage will be removed at a later date.

It has been a mammoth task, amplified by a lack of contractor and casual staff availability. This is a problem being experienced across the state as many Council areas work to recover from the storm. We hope to have additional help on hand very soon.

The impact of the storm on our operations, the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and strong spring growth, has impacted on our mowing and weed management routine.

We ask that residents remain patient. Everything will be cleared, but it will continue to take time.

Thank you for your understanding.

If you see something in a public space that we need to address, please use ‘Report It’ on our website – www.brimbank.vic.gov.au//forms/report-it – or call 9249 4000.
