Pest Management Plan / Biosecurity Strategy

Partial review of Plan

The Regional Pest Management Plan for Taranaki is undergoing a partial review with a view to adding a rule relating to mustelids (ferrets, stoats and weasels). Read the formal proposal for inclusion of mustelids [PDF, 1.3 MB]

Submissions have closed and a hearing will be held in 2021. 

The Plan is the Council's 'rulebook' that targets specific pests for eradication or sustained control in the region. The Strategy outlines our broader biosecurity goals and actions, covering all pests and harmful organisms, not just those in the Plan.
