Our Regional Pest Management Strategy has been reviewed
to meet the requirements in the Government’s National Policy Direction for Pest
Management and a new Southland Regional Pest Management Plan and accompanying
Biosecurity Strategy developed.
The strategy outlines how Environment Southland will
oversee the management of biosecurity over the next five years, including key
objectives and how these may be achieved. It’s our vision for biosecurity into
the future and, together with the Southland Regional Pest Management Plan,
tells Environment Southland’s biosecurity story.
The new Southland Regional Pest Management
Plan and Biosecurity Strategy were publicly notified on 14 June 2019 and, following an appeal period, have now become operative.
