Auckland Council has prepared a draft Weed Management Policy that will guide the management of weeds on Auckland Council owned or administered land, including parks and reserves, road corridors, civic spaces, riparian margins, wetlands, beaches, volcanic landscapes, as well as areas of wilderness and native forest.
The policy sets out a vision and objectives for weed management, and identifies a range of tasks and actions that will be undertaken in order to implement the objectives of the policy.
Your feedback will provide council with an understanding of your/your organisation’s views on the proposed approach and help us further refine the policy prior to its adoption.
Council are hoping to collate all feedback on the draft policy by the end of April.
How is this important to you?
Part of the weed management policy includes managing weeds on the sides of the roads and in public areas, currently in Muriwai these are sprayed sporadically or mowed with a 'mulcher mower' that can damage native species - is this what the community wants?
MeACT would like to put a submission in based on your feedback so please provide any comments you have via email by Friday 19th April 2013.
