Redland City Council and the Redlands Coast community are responsible for the management of biosecurity risks from invasive weeds, pest fish and pest animals in Redlands Coast. Impacts from invasive weeds, pest fish and pest animals can result in significant loss of biodiversity and can have considerable financial consequences for the agriculture industry.
Redlands Coast Biosecurity Plan 2018-2023
The Redlands Coast Biosecurity Plan 2018-2023 [PDF, 4.0MB] provides clear guidelines on how Redland City Council can meet biosecurity obligations under the Biosecurity Act 2014, inform the Redlands Coast community and manage invasive plants, pest fish and pest animals in Redlands Coast. The plan will achieve this by providing a strategic planning framework, bringing all sectors of the local community together to be informed, prioritising and committing to manage pests and ensuring resources are targeted to the highest priority management activities and are those most likely to succeed.
