Regional Pest Management Strategy

Our Regional Pest Management Strategy is currently being reviewed as we develop a new Regional Pest Management Plan. Initial feedback on what should be included in the plan has now closed and this will be considered before the preparation of a draft plan which is expected to go out for public submission later in the year.

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.
