The Noxious Weeds Act 1993 regulates noxious weeds in NSW. These weeds have significant economic, environmental and social impacts for the State. Noxious weed control activities are undertaken by the NSW Government, local governments, industry and the community.
In February this year, the NSW Government introduced the Noxious Weeds Amendment Bill 2012 to amend the Noxious Weeds Act 1993. The Bill contains amendments designed to strengthen the preventative and investigative measures contained in the Act. The Bill also sets out clarifications to several administrative functions.
