Why would Goulburn, Crookwell and Yass be zoned with the coast? I find this ridiculous, could someone please explain why ? These are very different areas with very different dynamics. To think that you can manage these areas as a whole, sufficiently, is delusional.

Re: Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan. My sister, brother and I jointly own a 50 acre property at 730 Kalkite Road Kalkite, which has been our family holiday home for approximately 50 years, and is currently used by all of us, our children and friends. We love this area, and have always endeavoured to maintain proper control of weeds and other pests and have responded promptly and co-operatively in relation to any notices served on us in that regard. It is concerning that two of our neighbours are not observing their obligations in this respect. Our land adjoins Snowy Hydro foreshores, as well as 4 other landholders. Three of these neighbours are vigilant in weed control, but one has allowed a large patch of serrated tussock to flourish directly adjoining our land and Snowy Hydro leased land adjoining our land has not had proper control of weeds administered for some years. Our land is suffering a constant influx of declared noxious weeds from these two neighbours. We have been assured that weed rehabilitation of the Snowy Hydro is "going forward", but worry that this may be too little, too late and in too short a time frame, which will not enable spraying to take effect. The other landholder has repeatedly ignored council requests for him to deal with the serrated tussock. If this situation is repeated over a wide areas of the south east, as we understand it is, the situation is dire and needs to be urgently addressed. A starting point might be to assist local councils to prosecute recalcitrant landholders, without fear of incurring financial loss as I understand that a number of wealthy landholders could possess sufficient financial resources to successfully challenge council prosecutions. I do not know how this could be done, but imagine that the state government has the power to solve this problem.

There is a great need for the mapped information on feral animal.actvity and predation to be published to the community. Greater emphasis is needed on the use of visual stimulation to people showing where and what is happening. People are complacent to read extensive news letters and a need for pictorkal information is critical. You are not reaching your target audience sufficiently to cause them to react!
