Broom (RPMP 2018)

Thickets of broom growing wild in a field, blooming with distinctive bright yellow flower.

Broom is subject to a Sustained Control programme as part of the Regional Pest Management Plan 2018 (RPMP).

Land occupiers with broom on their property are required to destroy all broom plants within 10 m of adjacent property boundaries, before they produce seed, where the adjacent property is free of broom.

In the Waima/Ure, Upper Wairau and Upper Awatere areas of Marlborough, Council has defined broom Control Zones and/or Containment areas. Occupiers are required to destroy broom plants as defined in the Regional Pest Management Plan 2018.
