Together with Landcare, Council maintain a pest and weed control program and roadside management.
Landcare is a national network of thousands of locally-based community groups who care for the natural resources of our country.
Loddon Shire Council is responsible for the control of noxious weeds on Council-managed (municipal) roadsides and fire access tracks throughout the Shire.
Landowners have a legal responsibility to control weeds on their property. You must take reasonable steps to remove regionally prohibited weeds and to prevent the growth and spread of regionally controlled weeds on any land owned by you.
The identification of weed species is critical when selecting the best weed control methods for successful long-term eradication and a return to a healthy and productive natural environment.
Swooping season occurs each year due to birds such as Magpies and Masked Lapwings (plovers) swooping to protect their eggs and young. This is a normal behaviour for some birds during the breeding season
