Review of the Lord Howe Island Board Biosecurity Strategy

In 2015, the Lord Howe Island Board (LHIB) commissioned AECOM to review and evaluate the Quarantine Strategy for Lord Howe Island (Landos 2003) and to use the findings to develop the Lord Howe Island Biosecurity Strategy 2016.

The strategy aims to improve biosecurity measures for the island and to help protect the island’s unique environment, tourism industry and agriculture from biosecurity risks.  It has been developed on the premise that biosecurity is a shared responsibility that is not too onerous or impacts significantly on the cost of living.

The revised Draft Biosecurity Strategy 2016 will be placed on public exhibition for a period of 28 days, from Friday 15th January 2016. Copies of the Draft Strategy will be on display at the Board's Administration Office during normal business hours and electronic copies can be downloaded below.
