Council conducts Biosecurity programs in accordance with the Biosecurity Act 2014.

The Act allows council officers to enter properties throughout the Sunshine Coast region to identify and respond to biosecurity risks relating to invasive plants. If a person has failed to carry out their General Biosecurity Obligation (GBO) a Biosecurity order may be issued directing a person to control invasive plants.

Program details

The most recent program ran from 1 April 2016 until 30 June 2016.

Particular emphasis was placed on inspecting the localities of:

  • Peachester
  • Conondale
  • Eudlo
  • Hunchy
  • Mapleton
  • Reesville
  • Witta
  • Weyba Downs
  • Tanawha
  • North Arm

Officers doing these inspections made every attempt to contact residents before entering their property.

Program details are listed in the minutes[10041KB] of council's Ordinary Meeting of 18 June 2015.
