Regional Pest Management Plan
The Bay of Plenty Regional Council adopted a new Regional Pest Management Plan for 2011 - 2016 in September 2011. The Plan identifies the plants and animals considered to be pests in the region, and outlines how each pest will be managed. It also explains the pest management roles and responsibilities for Council, as well as landowners and occupiers, across the region.
Each year we produce an annual operational plan that sets operational targets and specific performanace measures that link to the outcomes and objectives in the long-term Regional Pest Management Plan. At the end of the year we report on the highlights and issues from the previous year as well as progress against the specific targets.
