Draft Pesticide Use Notification Plan

The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage is seeking your comments on a proposed Pesticide Use Notification Plan.

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) manages an extensive system of more than 860 conservation areas and has a statutory responsibility to manage these to conserve nature and places of cultural value. Weed and pest control programs are a management priority and pesticides are an essential component of many programs.

NPWS has prepared a draft plan, updating the current plan which was published in 2006. As per the Pesticides Regulation 2009, the aim of the plan is to meet the community’s right to know about pesticide applications made to outdoor public places. Such notifications should allow members of the community to take action to avoid contact with pesticides.

The draft Plan sets out how NPWS proposes to notify the community of pesticide applications it makes in lands acquired or reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
