The Burke Shire local government area pest management plan has been developed in accordance with the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002 for the benefit of the entire community. The expertise of stakeholders (including representatives of local and state government agencies, industry groups, environmental and other community groups and private landholders) has been drawn on in planning for cooperative management of pests on all land within the shire boundaries.
The key objectives of the plan are to:
- improve the use of the resources and expertise available for managing pests within the Shire;
- reduce the economic, environmental and social impact of pests.
This plan supersedes the Burke Shire Local Government Area Pest Management Plan 2007-2010.
