Land and Pest Management

Land and pest management is about how we as a community can get involved in activities that contribute to the overall health of our Shire’s natural environment. Weeds and pest animals have significant impacts on the environment, the economy and the community, including human health and recreation. Council is investing resources into how individuals can take part in or gain information about issues that may affect them or they can assist with.

On 1 July 2016 the new Biosecurity Act 2014 replaced the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002 with the aim to improve Queensland’s biosecurity preparedness and response capabilities. With the introduction of the new Biosecurity Act 2014 on 1 July 2016, landowners have been delegated more responsibility and accountability in relation to managing pest species. To see how this new Act will affect you, please view the fact sheet below.
