Vegetation & Noxious Weeds

Bogan Shire Council would like to advise all rural and residential landholders, that under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015 (the Act) all properties are to be inspected at least once in a five year period for weed risk.

The council as the Local Control Authority under s370 of the Act has appointed a Biosecurity Weeds Officer (BWO) under s372(2) of the Act.

The BWO will be sending letters to landholders in relation to property inspections in regards to weeds and weed control only. If you would like an inspection prior to receiving any correspondence please do not hesitate to contact the Council on 02 6835 9000.
