Regional Weed Management

The North West Regional Weed Committee (NW RWC) encourages and works towards effective weed management planning across the north west region.

The regional weed committee comprises representatives from more than 20 organisations including local control authorities, public and private landholders and community members involved in weed management across the north west.

The committee provides a forum for the local community and stakeholders, an opportunity to learn and share awareness, and is paramount in protecting the region from environmental threats.

The purpose of the NW RWC is to provide ‘tenure-neutral’ strategic planning and coordination of weed management activities at the regional level. These activities play an integral part in an overall state weed management framework.

Your local council can provide information and advice on local weed management issues. You can report suspect plants to your local council Weeds Officer for investigation and identification. Weed control functions of Local Control Authorities are prescribed by section 371 of the Biosecurity Act 2015.

The North West Local Land Services region covers the following local government areas:

  • Gunnedah
