Time is running out for input into pest management review

Central Tablelands Local Land Services is reminding interested individuals and organisations they have until this Friday 20 April to have their say on the draft Central Tablelands Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan.

Landholders, stakeholders and community members have had the opportunity to consider the plan and provide feedback at six community information sessions that were held in the region.

For those that were unable to attend a session, feedback can still be provided via the Central Tablelands Local Land Services website while the plan is on public exhibition. 

The overall purpose of the plan is to get everyone to work together to protect the environment, community and economy from the negative impacts of pest animals and to support outcomes for biosecurity and sustainable landscapes. 

Central Tablelands Local Land Services Manager of Biosecurity and Emergency Services Clare Hamilton said the plan sets the strategic direction for pest animal management for the next five years.

“It’s imperative everyone has their say during this consultation period as it will help guide resourcing and investment dedicated to coordinated pest animal management in the coming years,” she said.

“It’s been fantastic to see landholders supplying feedback over the last month, so I urge anyone left to submit theirs to do so by the end of the week.” 

The draft plan has been developed collaboratively with the Central Tablelands Regional Pest Animal Committee and Central Tablelands Local Land Services.

The plan will be on public exhibition until 5pm Friday 20 April 2018.
