Pesticide Use Notification Plan

The Pesticide Use Notification Plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of and the purposes of the Pesticides Regulation 2009. The Plan sets out how and in what circumstances Council will notify members of the community of pesticide applications it makes or allows to be made to outdoor public places that it owns or controls.

The aim of the Plan is to meet the community’s general right to know about pesticide applications made to outdoor public places that are owned or controlled by the Council. The Plan does not apply to outdoor public places which are not owned or controlled by Council.

The Plan allows members of the community to take action to avoid contact with pesticides, if they wish. Council ensures that pesticides are applied to public places in a safe and responsible manner, minimising harm to the community and the environment.

The Plan sets out how Council will notify members of the community of pesticide applications made by Council in public places.

The Pesticide Use Notification Plan was adopted by Council on 22 July 2015.
