Pest Survey Program

Pest Survey Program

Council conducts pest survey programs. This is in accordance with Section 241 of the Land Protection Act 2002

The Act allows council officers to enter properties throughout the Sunshine Coast region. Officers can also monitor and enforce compliance under the Act as follows:

  • survey properties which may harbour declared pests
  • map the distribution of declared pests.

Program details

Particular emphasis will be placed on inspecting the localities of:

  • Coolum Beach
  • Glass House Mountains
  • Maroochy River
  • Ninderry
  • Peregian Beach
  • Yandina Creek
  • Kenilworth
  • Obi Obli
  • Palmwoods

The program will run from 1 October 2014 until 31 December 2014.

Officers doing these inspections will make every attempt to contact residents before entering their property.

Program details are listed in the minutes [PDF 2075KB] of council's Ordinary Meeting of 22 May 2014.
