Auckland Council has released a discussion document in advance of a 2016 review of their Regional Pest Management Plan (RPMP). Much has changed since the inception (2007) of their current RPMP - changes in the environment, pest threats in New Zealand and Auckland, climate change and national Biosecurity Act reforms.

Matters up for discussion include Bangalow palm and management options for a number of other plants identified as pests in Auckland.

The discussion documents are on their website, and they seek feedback prior to 27 November. NGINZ will be reviewing the documents and would also appreciate your feedback – send this to John Liddle,
