Noxious Weeds Handbook for Councils and Councillors
The implementation of noxious weed management has been the responsibility of local government in NSW since 1906, providing continuity in weed management.
In a state as large and diverse as NSW there is a great variation in weed species and their ability to impact on the local flora and agricultural industries.
Continuity in weed management provides benefits for local communities.
An informed council can make decisions on noxious weed priorities for its area and implement an appropriate control strategy.
Councils are now cooperating with each other to produce regional weed management strategies to maximise coordination for the benefit of all concerned.
The Handbook is available for download below in sections or as a combined document.
