The plan also acknowledges that pest management impacts the entire community and provides an operational framework that applies to all groups, interests and land uses. It outlines areas of pest management responsibilities for individuals, agencies and organisations, and provides landholders with strategic direction and mechanisms to set priorities for pest management on their property.
