A Property Pest Management Plan is an integral part of an overall property management plan. A Property Pest Management Plan is developed by you with the assistance of Council officers for the strategic management of pest plants and animals on your property.
Once you have an approved Property Pest Management Plan, you are eligible for Council's Land Protection Subsidy Schemes, including Weed Control Equipment Hire and Herbicide Subsidy Scheme.
The Property Pest Management Plan Fact Sheet provides further details on the plans and how to develop one for your property.
