Have your say on regional biosecurity management

Mar 12, 2019 | Front Page Feature, News



Developed in 2017, the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy aims to align regional invasive species management goals across the Wide Bay Burnett region. Following its inaugural year of implementation, the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils (WBBROC) and North Burnett Regional Council invite community members to participate in its review.

North Burnett Regional Council Mayor Cr Rachel Chambers said that the review of the Regional Biosecurity Strategy is an opportunity for the community to have their say on the future direction of invasive species management within the region.

“Workshops will allow the community to highlight their invasive species concerns for the North Burnett local government area, and beyond, as well as providing an opportunity to meet with Council’s biosecurity staff,” Mayor Chambers said.

The review of the Strategy is part of a larger project funded by the Queensland Government as part of the Better Partnerships Project. The Wide Bay Burnett local governments are contributing to the project, which has an aim to improve regional biosecurity partnerships across the region.

The regional workshops will be undertaken across the Wide Bay Burnett local government areas during the month of March.  For those that are unable to attend a workshop, they have the ability to access an online survey to provide their thoughts on the regional biosecurity strategy. A link for the online survey can be found on the WBBROC website or visit the survey monkey link direct.

In conjunction with WBBROC’s Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy, North Burnett Regional Council is progressing the North Burnett Regional Council draft Biosecurity Plan 2019-2024.  For further information please see Council’s website.
