The North West Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan is now on display for Public Consultation until March 8.
An Information Session is planned in Quirindi on Tuesday 21 February, commencing at 9.30am and running through to 12.30pm with morning tea supplied at the Quirindi Jockey Club Dining Room.
The draft Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan has been developed collaboratively with the North West 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.
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.
Liverpool Plains Shire Council is encouraging all partners in this process to provide input and feedback on the local regional plan.
Copies of the regional plans, factsheets, frequently asked questions, and feedback forms are available on the Local Land Services Open website - http://open.lls.nsw.gov.au/
