Regional Weed Spread Prevention Strategy 2008 - 2010
The Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (FNQROC) Regional Weed Spread Prevention Strategy directs the principle management of priority weeds across the region through actions that minimise further spread of these weed species.
Agencies, industry and community members were invited to contribute to a draft report which was delivered to the Far North Queensland Local Government Pest Plan Advisory Committee (FNQLGPPAC) members in April 2007 and the FNQ Weed Spread Prevention Group in March and April 2007. Much of this initial report is included within the Strategy. Therefore, the Strategy represents the collective knowledge from community, agency and industry representatives across the Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (FNQROC) member region.
The following individuals represented their local government, agency or industry as attendees of the FNQ Weed Spread Prevention Group, which met on the 12th December 2006 and 22nd March 2007.

development of the strategy. David Wood (Power Link) and Barbara Waterhouse

Acknowledging all contributors is not possible; however it must be noted that the
range of stakeholders that have contributed to the development of the Strategy has
encouraged a coordinated and integrated approach to weed spread prevention across
the FNQROC member region.
The strategy was compiled by Kirby Doak.
