Public Exhibition - Wollondilly Biosecurity Policy and Strategy

Closes: 12/08/2020 5:00pm

Council is inviting feedback on our draft updated Wollondilly Biosecurity Policy and Strategy.

The Policy and supporting Strategy have been updated to align with the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015, which replaced the Noxious Weeds Act 1993.  Our overall objectives remain the same - as directed by the NSW Invasive Species Plan. These objectives are:

  • Exclude - stop the introduction of new weeds
  • Eradicate or Contain - destroy new infestations of weeds or prevent them spreading into new areas
  • Effectively Manage - reduce the impact of widespread weeds
  • Capacity Building - increase the ability and commitment of all landholders to manage weeds.
