Pesticide Use Notification Plan for NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service
The New South Wales Pesticides Regulation 1995 requires that public authorities such as the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) prepare a Pesticide Use Notification Plan that outlines how they will notify the community of pesticide applications made to public places.
In July 2006 NPWS released a draft Pesticide Use Notification Plan for public comment. The draft plan has been revised to address issues raised by the public.
The final plan describes:
- what public places are covered by the plan
- who regularly uses these public places and an estimate of the level of use, and
- how and when NPWS will provide the community with information about its pesticide applications in public places (i.e. what notification arrangements will be used).
The plan covers all lands acquired or reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974
