We are developing a Rabbit Control Plan to protect environmental and recreational areas on City land and support farmers.
Rabbits are an introduced pest to Australia and are declared as “established pest animals” under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. Every landowner, including the City, is responsible for the control of rabbits on their land.
To successfully control rabbits on a landscape scale we need a long-term plan with an integrated management approach and coordinated effort with the community.
If you would like to provide input into the Rabbit Action Plan our consultation period is from 16th August to 15th September 2019. During this time there will be three 'open house' consultation sessions in Geelong, Lara and Leopold open to all.
You're also invited to complete our online survey.
Printed copies of the survey will also be available at our customer service centres and the consultation sessions.
