Roadside Weeds and Pest Program Control Plan

Council has been awarded funding of $52,595 per annum for two years from the Victorian Government under the Roadside Weeds and Pests Program for the implementation of a Roadside Weeds and Pests Program Control Plan.

The objective of the plan is to prevent the introduction of and control the spread of priority invasive plant species and rabbits across the municipality and region. The plan complements past investments made by Council enabled through State Government initiative funding.

Council’s overall roadside weed and rabbit management objective is the effective and proactive management of priority invasive species on Council managed roadsides across the municipality.

The plan will run from December 2017 to 30 June 2019.
