Native Waterwise Verge Rebate

In 2017, the Town trialed a Native Waterwise Verge Rebate to encourage residents to transition to a native waterwise verge. This program will continue to run in 2019 and 2020.

By making the transition to a native waterwise verge, residents may be eligible for a rebate of $15 per m2 of converted verge, with a maximum claim value of $500.

The rebate will be available during 2019 and 2020 but are not awarded retrospectively.
