We are seeking community consultation and feedback on the Biosecurity Plan 2021 - 2025 and need your help. Attend a community info session or complete the review survey.
Gladstone Regional Council is developing a Biosecurity Plan to strengthen and protect the Gladstone Region’s environment and ecosystems from biosecurity risks. In accordance with the Biosecurity Act 2014, the new strategy will replace the current Biosecurity Plan expiring in December 2020.
The plan sets out key objectives and priority actions for our unique region. Key issues include invasive pest plants including giant rats tail grass, parthenium, feral Leucaena, absentee landholders and pest animals including wild dogs, feral pigs, rabbits, foxes, Indian myna birds.
The draft plan has been informed by a significant amount of research, alignment with the Biosecurity Act 2014, and consideration of emerging priorities. It also forms the foundation of Council actions which includes control of land, community education & awareness and compliance & enforcement of the act within the region.
We are now seeking community consultation and feedback on the plan and need your help.
You can become involved by attending a community info session or by completing the draft plan review survey.
For more information, to review the plan, complete the survey and RSVP for a community info session go to conversations.gladstone.qld.gov.au/ (Survey opens Wednesday 9 September 2020, closes Friday 26 September 2020).
