Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.
This pesticide/herbicide use notification plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Pesticide Regulation 2009 (the Regulation).
The aim of the plan sets out how Tenterfield Shire Council (TSC) will notify members of the community of pesticide/herbicide applications it makes or allows to be made to public places that it manages. Notification of pesticide/herbicide use will allow members of the community to make informed decisions to reduce their exposure to pesticide/herbicides if they wish. Council ensures that pesticide/herbicides are applied to public places in a safe, responsible manner, minimising harm to the community and the environment.
