Hinchinbrook Local Government Area Biosecurity Plan - 2020 Review

Hinchinbrook Shire Council is responsible for the implementation of the Hinchinbrook Local Government Area Biosecurity Plan (HLGABP), which covers all land tenure within the Hinchinbrook Shire and has been developed for the entire community.

As part of the 2020 annual review of the Plan, Council is seeking advice from the broader community about their perceptions, expectations, concerns and ideas to improve the way Council develops and administers the Plan across all land uses in the Shire.

The aims of the Plan are to:

  • Prioritise invasive biosecurity matter to reduce impacts and prevent spread and introduction within Hinchinbrook Shire based on best practice pest management principles;
  • Identify the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders involved and provide direction on priority pest management activities;
  • Outline everyone’s obligation to minimise the impact of biosecurity risks on people, the economy and the environment;
  • Clearly identify resources for effective management of pests and outline the priorities so that resources are managed efficiently; and
  • Ensure appropriate management of invasive biosecurity matter and improved scope and opportunities for monitoring and evaluating the Plan.

In order for feedback to be considered, it is necessary for information to be provided to Council by 11.59pm Wednesday 26 August 2020.
