ACT legislation relating to noxious weeds

In the ACT the relevant legislation for the management and control of serrated tussock is the Pest Plants and Animals Act 2005 (PPAA) and the Nature Conservation Act 1980.

In the Act, Land Management Agreements (LMA) are developed between lessees and the Government.  The LMA establishes an agreed framework for the sustainable management of the land and provides a basis for assessment of compliance with related lease conditions.  The LMA is the most relevant vehicle for developing a strategic approach to the management of weeds on rural land.
