Rous County Council is constituted under the Local Government Act 1993 and was specifically formed to provide certain functions for the local councils in which we operate.
In the weed biosecurity area, Rous County Council uses the weeds listed in the Biosecurity Act 2015 and the Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan to guide our activities and those of the community. The regional plan sorts weeds into categories in order of priority based on their level of threat, current distribution and feasibility to control.
The Weed Biosecurity Compliance and Enforcement Framework provides information for all internal and external stakeholders and interested parties about Council’s position on weed biosecurity compliance and enforcement.
Look around your property regularly for any new weed incursions. Know your weeds and where they are categorised under the regional plan. Manage your own property to eradicate the weed or minimise (depending on the weed) the risk of weeds spreading.
In September 2019, Tweed Shire Council held a workshop at Tyalgum. This event was the first of a series of eight workshops and field days to be held as part of the Small Farms Big Changes project, which has been assisted by the NSW government through its Environmental Trust.
