Completed Control Works Forms must be submitted by 30 July 2018.
If you fail to submit your Control Works Form(s) you will have your IPCS levy concession revoked via issue of a supplementary rates notice.
The IPCS applies to all invasive pests that are listed as being restricted under the Biosecurity Act or declared under Council’s Local Laws. Lantana and mother of millions are both restricted under the Act and therefore must be controlled and must be noted on landowners’ Control Works Forms if present on their land. Other species that are not restricted or declared, such as Johnson grass, African love grass and Japanese honeysuckle are not required by law to be controlled. This is most commonly because the Queensland Government has undertaken risk assessments that have found control of these widespread species is not realistic or economically viable.
The IPCS has been approved for three years. The Scheme will be reviewed at least annually up until that time and the Council of the day will decide if and in what form the IPCS takes from then on. However, the IPCS was approved with the intention of becoming an ongoing program of Council.
