Pest plants

Under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007, local government authorities can prescribe any plant, other than a declared plant, to be a pest plant.

It is each local government authority’s responsibility to schedule a plant for pest plant status and administer the pest plant sections of the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 in respect of that plant.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development provides advice on how to prescribe a pest plant, if you need advice on prescribing a pest plant please search our website.

If you need advice on pest plants in your local government area please contact your local government authority or search the Department of Local Government’s Local Law register.
