Welcome to the Southern Tablelands and South Coast Regional Noxious Plants Committee website.

The Southern Tablelands and South Coast Noxious Plants Committee is the leading organisation for weeds in the NSW south east region, comprising all key stakeholders involved in weed management from Bega Valley Shire in the south to Wollongong City in the north and west to the Snowy Mountains and including most of the Southern Tablelands and Slopes districts.

The Southern Tablelands and South Coast Regional Noxious Plants Committee is one of the oldest Committees of its type in the State. The Committee was originally set up as a forum for weed control agencies to exchange ideas and as a meeting point where members could share their experiences with colleagues from other sectors of the industry.

The Committee has always been strongly supported, particularly by constituent Councils and their respective weeds officers, various State agencies and the resident community. Over the years, the focus of the Committee has shifted so as to embrace the expectations of these agencies and the community as a whole. Consequently the Committee is now skilled in planning processes, professional development and education and extension activities to name but a few.

The Committee looks forward to the future and is moving onward towards a more integrated approach to regional weed control.

Our website gives you access to a wide range of information and pictures on individual noxious, environmental and agricultural weeds found in the area. We also offer you access to numerous Strategies and Plans and links to other useful websites

Motto: Leading the way by setting the standard.

The NSW South East Region offers a magnificent diversity of coastal, forest, mountain and rural country. With a mild climate the region supports a wide range of both native and introduced plant species. Many of the regions introduced weeds originate from the Americas, southern Africa and Europe where similar climatic conditions prevail. However, with a lack of natural influences to keep these plants in check in Australia their growth and spread has become unrestricted and they now threaten the very existence of the South East's agricultural and environmental attributes.
