Council conducts Biosecurity programs in accordance with the Biosecurity Act 2014.

The Act allows council officers to enter properties throughout the Sunshine Coast region to identify and respond to biosecurity risks relating to invasive plants and animals. If a person has failed to carry out their General Biosecurity Obligation (GBO) a Biosecurity order may be issued directing a person to control prohibited or restricted invasive plants or animals.

Program details

Officers conducting these inspections attempt to contact residents before entering their property.

Program details are listed in the minutes of council's Ordinary Meeting of 23 July 2020.
