The new Regional Pest Management Strategy for Southland was approved by Council on 27 February 2013 and became operative on 1 March 2013.
The previous strategy expired at the end of its statutory five year
life on 31 August 2012. The new strategy is identical to the previous
one and is an interim measure to retain the current policies and
regulatory powers until it can be fully reviewed to meet the provisions
of the recently substantially amended Bisoecurity Act.
