The program will benefit rural and farming communities within the shire, with funding support to substantially increase the capacity of community members to manage the difficult and complex issues created by weeds and pests.

“This grant will enable Council to provide direct support to community members in their efforts to control some of the most prevalent and stubborn weeds in our shire,” Council’s Manager of Environment and Community Safety Stewart Anderson said.

“This is a rare opportunity for Council to run a landscape-scale program to treat high-priority weed species and conduct rabbit control on both private and Council-managed land."

The expression of interest process is now open and will close on Tuesday 23 July at 5pm.
