Each and every landowner in the Shire has statutory obligations under the Catchment and Land Protection (CaLP) Act 1994 to control specific noxious weeds on their land. This includes weeds such as Wheel Cactus, Blackberry, Gorse, Paterson’s Curse, Cape Broom, St Johns Wort and Sweet Briar Rose. The LMR will not be awarded to property owners who have these weeds, and are not actively working to control them.
Applications closed on Friday 3 March 2017. Late applications will not be accepted. Please also note that it is the responsibility of the land owner to apply for the LMR each year.
If you have questions about the Land Management Rate Application please contact Council on (03) 5471 1700.
Council undertakes sample inspections of properties registered for the LMR to ensure the program is being as effective as possible.
