Managing Roadsides Guides (2014)
  • Neil Dufty
These guidelines have been prepared for local councils seeking to achieve best practice in roadside environmental management through the use of Roadside Vegetation Management Plans (RVMPs). However, the guidelines will also be of relevance to managers of other linear reserves which, by nature of their shape and issues, have similar management requirements.

Actions relating to the management of high, medium and low conservation value roadsides could include:
Appropriate maintenance of roadsides

Signage and markers


Community education


Stakeholder engagement and partnerships

Funding opportunities

Restoration and rehabilitation projects
To best manage roadside environments it is important that council staff and contractors use appropriate maintenanceregimes for high, medium and low value conservation sites.
