Regional Pest Management Plan Review
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is reviewing the way it approaches pest management. The Regional Pest Management Plan review is underway and a discussion document is now available below.
We would appreciate feedback from residents and ratepayers on the best way to continue to manage a wide range of animal, plant and marine pests. The discussion document focusses on key pests and areas that may require new or different approaches. There is also a growing community expectation for a greater focus on protecting our native species and habitats, after several years of pest strategies focusing on agriculture production benefits.
You are welcome to provide feedback online below by 7 July 2017.
The Regional Pest Management Plan will supersede the current Regional Pest and Phytosanitary Management Strategies both of which you can find on our Biosecurity webpage here.
You are welcome to provide feedback below by following the discussion document below and answering the associated questions in the online submission form. We need your feedback by 7 July 2017.
