DRAFT - Weed Management Plan

Have you say on the draft Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan.

The South East Regional Weed Committee, in consultation with Local Land Services staff, NSW Department of Primary  Industries and local councils, have developed a new five year Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan to focus on managing and controlling priority weeds across SE NSW.

The SE regional plan:

  • identifies weeds of state and regional priority
  • states the minimum control requirements to satisfy biosecurity duties established under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015
  • outlines what is required of government agencies, community groups and individual landholders in relation to preventing, eliminating or minimising the biosecurity risk for priority weed species.

The plan establishes priorities for weed management as well as strategies and actions to be implemented based on the principle of shared responsibility, sustainable landscapes, collaborative leadership and innovation.

Community consultation on the SE Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan is now open. Your feedback will be taken into consideration as we finalise the plan.

Tell us what you think

We want to hear from you about what’s important to you and your community.

You can be a landholder interested in what’s going on in your patch, a community member, or someone making a formal submission on behalf of members of a group or organisation – we are seeking feedback from all levels.
