The Burdekin Shire Biosecurity Plan sets down objectives and strategies required to implement a planned approach to the role of pest management in the Shire.
Through community involvement in its development, there is greater acceptance and understanding of the issue of pest management.
Local Government itself will have a planned approach to the management of pests in the Shire rather than reacting to isolated pressures and demands from within the community.
The Plan identifies resources needed for the effective management of pests and outlines priorities so that resources are managed in the most effective and efficient way.
The Plan shows the resources used by Local Government to manage pest infestations and will result in the Local Government being open and accountable to the community it is representing.
