The State Government has allocated $5.2million over the next two years to assist regional and rural councils in Victoria with the management of roadside weeds and pests.

The 2017-2019 Roadside Weeds and Pests Program will assist 56 rural and regional councils to plan, manage ‘regionally prohibited’ and ‘regionally controlled’ weeds and pests on rural roadsides.

Councils are required to prepare a Weed and Pest Animal Control Plan. Please see the main page for the Control Plan template.

Individual council allocations (based on length of rural roads) are as follows:
