Neighbourhood Disputes

Please note that property disputes between neighbours are civil matters and Council cannot intervene.

Civil matters must be dealt with privately by the parties involved. This includes:

  • Disagreements over boundary fences
  • Complaints regarding overhanging trees/shrubs

For assistance with neighbourhood disputes the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria offers a free advisory and mediation service.
