The IDWA Pesticides Notification Plan 2018-2021 is now open for public comment. All residents are being invited to comment on the draft plan.
The Pesticide Notification Plan must be reviewed in accordance with the Pesticides Regulation 2017. The draft Pesticide Notification Plan 2018 is substantially unchanged from the 2012 version except for the review period being changed from five years to three years and contact details being updated. The review period has been changed so that the IDWA can synchronise with its member Council’s Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama when they review their Pesticide Plans in 2021.
The Pesticide Notification Plan informs the public about the IDWA use of Pesticides in public places. Giving people notice about pesticide use lets them reduce their contact with pesticides, if they wish. Pesticides include herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, fumigants, bactericides, rodenticides, baits, lures, repellents and pesticides used on animals to control external parasites.
Plans can be viewed at Councils customer service counters , Illawarra Shoalhaven JO members extranet or on the IDWA website. Anyone wishing to comment on the draft Plan should send their comments to:David Pomery
The draft plan is open for public comment until Friday 27th April 2018.
