Priority Weeds in the Snowy Valleys Council Region

Snowy Valleys Council has two Regional Strategic Weed Management Plans (RSWMP).  One is for the Murray Region of Council and the other is for the Riverina Region.  These plans support the regional implementation of the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015 by articulating community expectations in relation to effective weed management and facilitating a coordinated approach to weed management in the region.

The plan identifies state and regionally prioritised weeds and outcomes to demonstrate compliance with the General Biosecurity Duty. Copies of all the RSWMPs can be found at: www.lls.nsw.gov.au/biosecurity/weed-control
