Submission date for control works forms extended after show of support for Invasive Pests Control Scheme

Southern Downs Regional Council has extended the submission date for Invasive Pests Control Scheme (IPCS) Control Works Forms.

The due date for the submission of Control Works Forms was 30 July 2018; however Council will continue to accept Control Works Forms until 10 August 2018.

Councillor for Rural, Environmental, Sustainability and Waste Management, Cameron Gow said the community has showed its support for the scheme, with Council continuing to receive 2018-19 IPCS Control Works Forms.

“Council is extremely happy with the response from landowners and acknowledges and supports the efforts of those who participate,” Cr Gow said.

“The aim of the scheme is for all landholders to be involved in active control measures with a coordinated approach, so the impacts of invasive pests are reduced across the entire region.

“By extending the deadline for submission, Council encourages even more landholders to take part and I urge all landholders to get their forms in and to also contact Council for advice, assistance or any feedback where needed.

“Landholders should contact Council as soon as they see invasive pests on Council land, so they can be dealt with accordingly.”

Landholders can submit their Control Works Form at the same time they pay their rates or online via Council’s web page. 

Cr Gow asked that landholders provide feedback to Council on the IPCS.

“Council is always looking to improve the IPCS and welcomes feedback from the community to enable positive change across the entire region,” he said.

“Have your say; please let Council know what you think about the IPCS by completing the online survey.”

Completed Control Works Forms can also be submitted via email to, by mail to PO Box 26, Warwick Qld 4370, or in person at Council’s Warwick and Stanthorpe Community Contact Centres.
