S.I. 477 of 2011 Advice Note to Local Authorities

 

Invasive non-native knotweeds are a group of plants that can grow vigorously and are easily spread from tiny fragments of the plant.  They negatively impact on:

  • biodiversity
  • flooding & water quality
  • infrastructure & development 

The European Communities (Birds and Natural Habitats) Regulations 2011 contain important new provisions to address the problem of invasive species. The threat of invasive knotweeds is relevant to all, with obligations on Local Authorities, public bodies, contractors, etc. and how they manage invasive knotweed species.
