Reason for having a revised strategic plan
The Draft Weed Management Strategic Plan 2019 replaces the BMCC Weed Strategy 2010.
The plan reflects Council's current management response to the multiple threats of weeds. Significant changes since 2010, included in the plan, are increased capacity to address the causes of weed spread such as stormwater and programs to target weed spread into new areas which is associated with the impacts of climate change.
Council's role as a Local Control Authority has changed under the new NSW Biosecurity Act 2015. The plan explains how new regulatory tools and an expanded target wee list (Priority Weeds) are applied under this legislation.
An updated five year Action Plan is included in the plan.
Consultation has concluded.
