Review of statutory Weed Management Plans

In accordance with the Weeds Management Act (the Act), the Minister for Environment and Natural Resources  is reviewing the Weed Management Plans for:

All land owners, managers and users are required to control declared weeds on their land in accordance with the Act. You have a legal obligation to undertake management of bellyache bush, mimosa and gamba grass as per the requirements of these Plans.

Land owners and occupiers are encouraged to provide feedback on the Plans until COB 20 March 2017. The Plans were developed in 2010 and reviewed in 2013 and 2014 with extensive stakeholder consultation. The Plans form part of a strategic approach to bellyache bush, mimosa and gamba grass management in the Northern Territory. They describe on-ground management requirements that can be enforced under the Act.

A questionnaire has also been developed to assist in reviewing these plans.

Bellyache bush, mimosa and gamba grass are all declared weeds in the Northern Territory with split declaration of:

  • Class A (to be eradicated)
  • Class B (growth and spread to be controlled) and
  • Class C (not to be introduced into the Northern Territory)
