Weeds Management has changed in NSW. The Noxious Weeds Act 1993 has been repealed and replaced with the Biosecurity Act 2015.

Hawkesbury River County Council (HRCC) has been serving the community since 1948. We are a single purpose Council, with our goal being to administer the Biosecurity Act 2015 throughout our Council areas of Blacktown, Hawkesbury, Penrith and the Hills Shire. This involves our organisation taking a nil-tenure, landscape approach to weed management across the entire region. We focus on early detection of new incursions and containment of high-risk plant species that impact on biodiversity, agriculture, and property.
Our website has been designed to provide detailed information about our Council and services that we provide. Our goal is to provide you with useful information about our Council, with the hope to make it easier for everyone to win the war against weeds.
