Provide your feedback on how the community is notified when we use pesticides in public places.

Transport for NSW uses pesticides in public places when necessary to control weeds, to protect public property from pest damage and to protect the users of public places from nuisance or danger. The term ‘pesticides’ includes herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, termiticides and vertebrate baits.

Our Pesticide use notification plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Pesticides Regulation 2017. This plan sets out how Transport, our agencies and our contractors will notify the community of the application of pesticides in public places with the aim of meeting the community’s general right to know about pesticide applications in outdoor public places.

Transport ensures pesticides are applied to public places in a safe, responsible manner, minimising harm to the community or the environment.

Tell us what you think

The opportunity for the community to provide feedback on the plan is now open. Your feedback will be taken into consideration as we finalise the plan. Feedback is not sought on the type of pesticide use or the method or frequency of application.

You can provide feedback on the plan by reading the document and completing the form on this site.

You can access a digital copy of the document on this site, or a hardcopy of the document at the Transport for NSW Head Office concierge desk (231 Elizabeth St, Sydney NSW 2000).

Thank you for your feedback

This engagement is now closed. Thank you for participating and sharing your thoughts and ideas. The final plan is now available on the Transport for NSW webite.

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:
