Regional Strategic Weed Management Plans Open For Public Consultation

Central Tablelands Local Land Services has released its draft Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan for public consultation until 8 March. 
The draft Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan has been developed collaboratively with the Central Tablelands Regional Weed Committees and Local Land Services. 
The plans contain established strategies and actions to achieve goals that focus on shared responsibility for weed management, sustainable landscapes and collaborative leadership and innovation.
Local Land Services are seeking input and feedback on the regional plan. 
The plans and supporting documentation are available on the Local Land Services Open website. 
The Biosecurity Act 2015 adopts the concept of a general biosecurity duty. It means that anyone who is aware of a potential risk should take all reasonable and practical measures to minimise or eliminate that risk. The Regional Strategic Weed Management Plans are a direct response to this legislative reform.
The plans will guide resource allocation and investment in each region and will provide a consistent basis for regional planning and delivery.
The consultation period is an opportunity for you to provide feedback on the management of weeds in both the Central Tablelands region and across the State. 
The primary outcome of the weed reform process will be the integration of weed management efforts across the State. For the first time in NSW, there will be a set of agreed priorities and actions which apply across both public and private land. Increased collaboration in the management of weeds will improve biosecurity outcomes and increase agricultural productivity.
Copies of the regional plans, factsheets, frequently asked questions, and feedback forms are available on the Local Land Services Open website
