Control of Priority Weeds on Council Roadsides, Reserves and Crown Reserves

Public notification is based on the principle that, people who live and work in an area have a basic right to know when public places in the area are treated with pesticides. More information on pesticide use notification is available from the NSW Environment and Protection Authority - Compulsory Notification of Pesticide Use.

To comply with the regulations Snowy Monaro Regional Council has prepared a Pesticide Use Notification Plan that sets out how, when and where it will notify the general public of any recent or intended pesticide applications to prescribed public places under its control.

The Final Pesticide Use Notification Plan is currently under review, please contact Council's Vegetation department for more information.
