Hunter Regional Pest Animal Committee
One of the key actions from the NSW Government's response to the Natural Resource Commission's review of pest animal management was the implementation of 11 regional pest animal committees and 11 regional pest animal management plans.
The Hunter Regional Pest Animal Committee is tasked with encouraging cross tenure pest animal management, developing local pest animal management plans, consulting with stakeholders and advising the State Pest Animal Committee.
The committee has 10 members selected by relevance of their sector to pest animal management and is supported by working groups on specific issues.
A regional approach to pest animal management will ensure that pest animal management tools, actions, and investments meets the needs and impacts experienced in each region.
The Hunter Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan was approved on 1 July 2018. The committee would like to thank the stakeholders and community members who participated in the development of the plan and took the time to make a submission during the public exhibition. The attached summary report outlines the outcomes of the consultation on the plan.
