Roadsides are a ready means for invasive plants and pest animals to spread throughout Victoria, threatening agricultural land, parks, forests and rural land asset values.


$2.86 million has been allocated for the 2023-2024 Roadside Weeds and Pests Program to assist eligible councils responsible for managing lengths of municipal rural roadsides.

Control Plans

For 2023-2024, eligible councils will be required to prepare a new Roadside Weeds and Pests Control Plan (Plan). The 2023-2024 Plan must be endorsed by the Agriculture Victoria regional contact listed below.

Further Information

The list of regionally prohibited, regionally controlled and restricted weeds and pests eligible for treatment under the RWPP is available from Agriculture Victoria
