Landholders working on applications to fund priority weeds projects
25 October 2017
Landholders and community members that submitted an expression of interest (EOI) in the Western Weed Management program are now completing their applications in the hope their projects are given the green light.
In total, eight submissions to carry out weed control works on land located within the Western Local Land Services region were received, and Western Local Land Services staff will now assist those people and groups with their applications.
The Western Weed Management program was launched in September and seeks to improve and sustain the condition of natural resources in the Western region by implementing control measures for weeds.
Western Local Land Services Senior Land Services Officer, Brian Dohnt is hopeful a majority of projects are approved which will result in considerable works being undertaken in the Western region and ultimately some great outcomes being achieved.
“Some of the projects will involve thousands of hectares so while eight might not seem like a large number itself, the projects will cover a large area and we would expect to see some great outcomes achieved,” Mr Dohnt said.
“Our staff are now assisting those that submitted an EOI and we are all looking forward to work commencing once approvals have been announced.”
The due date for applications is Wednesday, 15 November following which a review process will take place.

Funding for this program is through the National Landcare Program and Catchment Action NSW.
