Termites can be a problem in some parts of Victoria and some Councils have declared themselves as termite prone areas.
At Hobsons Bay there are certain parts of the municipality that have been declared as termite prone areas.
These areas are Williamstown, Newport and Spotswood, but some of these suburbs are partly zoned. You should check with the Council’s Building Department if your property is within this zone when considering new building work or purchasing a property.
