We want you to tell us your feedback on the new and revised Declared Plant Policies.
What is being decided?
Biosecurity SA, a division of Primary Industries and Region SA (PIRSA), in partnership with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) and the eight Natural Resources Management (NRM) boards, is seeking feedback on four revised declared plant policies for existing declared plants and five draft policies for new plants proposed for declaration under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004. We want you to provide input into the revision of the Declared Plant Policies and the addition of new declared plants.
