Council weed-control programs

Council is the local control authority for the Biosecurity Act 2015 (the Act) in relation to the enforcement of declared weeds, and is responsible for weed inspections of all land within Eurobodalla.

While the Act, Regulations and South East Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan (SERWMP) outline most enforcement obligations, Council has also implemented several weed control programs under the Act for significant weeds in Eurobodalla. Control requirements for these plants are outlined in these programs.

It is important to note that in the SERWMP, some plants such as African Love Grass are not considered to be 'priority weeds' at a regional scale, however, they are of high concern in Eurobodalla. Council's weed control programs bridge this gap to ensure that all landholders manage these locally threatening weeds appropriately. Landholders must legally comply with Council’s weed control programs to make sure they are meeting their biosecurity requirements.
