Regional Pest Management Plan
The principle goal of the Regional Pest Management Plan 2013-2038 is to limit the adverse effects of unwanted plants and animals. These invasive species can have wide ranging effects on human health, indigenous flora and fauna, our heritage, or the economy. When finalised, this Plan will supercede the current Regional Pest and Phytosanitary Management Strategies.
The Proposed Regional Pest Management Plan, with an associated cost-analysis report, is now available for consultation, from 2 February to 16 March 2018.
Positive engagement from the community through the release of a discussion document in 2017 has helped shape this plan - discussion document link to PDF
Regional Pest Management Strategy
The Pest Management Strategy provided the framework for managing defined pest plants and animals in the region from 2013 -2018. It will be superceded by the Regional Pest Management Plan in 2018.
Regional Phytosanitary Pest Management Strategy
This strategy, prepared in conjunction with Pipfruit New Zealand, Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association and Horticulture NZ, provides the framework for the management of unmanaged pipfruit production sites (abandoned commercial orchards) from 2013-18. It will be superceded by the Regional Pest Management Plan in 2018.
