Have your say - Regional Pest Management Plans

06 April 2017

Two regional councils are reviewing their Regional Pest Management Plans and you can help shape their outcomes.

The plans set out how pests are to be managed within each council’s respective region, and how management will be funded.

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) has developed a discussion document to gain feedback on the management of a range of pests including wild kiwifruit and moth plant. Northland Regional Council (NRC) is also asking for public feedback on their proposed Northland Regional Pest and Marine Pathway Management Plan.

Individual submissions are welcomed so please do have your say on any areas you’re particularly interested in. KVH and NZKGI will be making joint submissions to both councils providing comment on their proposed changes and how new pest management challenges could be addressed.

The submission period for the BOPRC closes Monday 1 May 2017 and submissions for the NRC need to be in by Friday 21 April 2017.
