Goulburn Mulwaree Council is committed to maintaining an effective and efficient program to control noxious weeds on both private and Council owned land. This integrated program provides the community with education, advisory, coordination and regulatory services.
Noxious weed management can be a complicated community problem - but not an insurmountable problem. Success requires long-term commitment, cooperation and knowledge.
All owners and occupiers of land have a physical, moral and legal obligation to control noxious weeds on their land.
Physical Requirement: Weeds compete for light, nutrients and moisture and therefore they contribute to reductions in plant and animal performance. Heavy infestations of noxious weeds can lead to a dramatic decline in levels of agricultural productivity. Noxious weeds also have the propensity to invade native grasslands and, as such, pose a major threat to the environment as well
Moral Requirement: All owners and occupiers of land have a moral obligation as caretakers of land to not only prevent the establishment of noxious weeds, but moreover to stop the spread of weeds from their land onto adjoining lands. This responsibility is obligatory to land ownership.
Legal Requirement: Under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993, owners and occupiers of land have a legal requirement to control noxious weeds.
