    Draft Regional Strategic Weed Management plans are currently on public exhibition!

    The 11 plans, representing different regions across NSW, are used to explain how each region will work together to identify, minimise, respond to and manage high-risk weeds over the next five years.

    Regional Weed Committees, in consultation with Local Land Services staff and Department of Primary Industries have developed new, five-year Regional Strategic Weed Management Plans to focus on managing and controlling weeds across NSW.

    These regional plans:

    • identify weeds of state and regional priority
    • state the minimum control requirements to satisfy biosecurity duties established under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015
    • outline 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 plans establish priorities for weed management as well as strategies and actions to be implemented based on principles of shared responsibility, sustainable landscapes, collaborative leadership and innovation.
