Regional Pest Management Plan 2019 - 2039 - launched

The Plan has now launched - thanks for your input

Helping us all protect the region from pests


We are pleased to announce that the plan is now live


On 2 July 2019 the common seal of the regional council was applied to the final version of the Plan and signed by Chief Executive Greg Campbell, and Deputy Chief Executive Nigel Corry.

We gave all those that submitted to the plan fifteen working days to make any appeals on the final version, and did not receive any.

Here are our hopes for the Plan:

Close your eyes, and picture a region filled with flourishing native plants, flitting birds, crawling insects, and healthy ecosystems. A resilient natural environment around us not just for our native species, but for quality drinking water too.

We’re striving to make this vision a reality, and in order to get there it’s important we build on what we’ve achieved in biosecurity in the past, and keep pests at bay. That’s where the Plan comes in.

The Plan guides us through the next twenty years of pest control. It represents a more connected approach to protecting the most valued spots in the region. It also means more collaborations with organisations, and with you the community, for a better future.

How we got here

We have been working hard to protect our community, primary industry and amazing regional biodiversity from the threat of invasive pests and wanted to make sure we include our local communities in how we do this. We also wanted to ensure that our work supports what we have been striving towards as a nation. That’s where our proposed Regional Pest Management Plan 2019 – 2039 comes in. We followed a year long process, including a period of consultation and a Hearing Panel to review submissions.
