Regional Pest Management Plan: Discussion Document


A Regional Pest Management Plan discussion document has been developed to canvas community feedback on how pests are managed in our region. This document signals Council’s thinking on its pest management effort in the future. For example what pests we will continue to manage, possible changes to our pest management approach and how we might address new pest management challenges. What we hear from the community will help us decide what goes into the next RPMP.


Consultation closed Monday 1 May 2017.


Council intends to notify the RPMP by September 2017.
