Pest Management Planning

Managing pest plants and animals is everyone’s responsibility. Every year significant environmental, social and economic impacts are discovered within our community. To help reduce these impacts, the Hinchinbrook Local Government Area Biosecurity Plan was developed by the Councils Pest Management Working Group (PMWG). This plan provides strategic direction for the management of both declared and other priority pests within the Hinchinbrook Shire.

Weeds and Vegetation

The various declared and environmental weeds that are known to exist locally have been prioritised by the Pest Management Working Group (PMWG). A Management Action Plan has been developed for each pest which details the priority ranking along with key information on controlling the pest. These Management Action Plans allow individuals or groups needing to manage pests to make better decisions on how to deal with a pest identified on lands under their control. 

To view the Management Action Plans please refer to pages 36 to 72 of the Biosecurity Plan.
