Invasive Weeds Management

The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 provides the primary controls on the release of non-native species into the wild in Great Britain.

It is an offence under the Act to ‘plant or otherwise cause to grow in the wild’ any plant listed in Schedule 9, Part II.

The only flowering plants currently listed in Schedule 9 are Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed.

Stricter enforcement provisions for wildlife offences were introduced under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. These include increased penalties available to the courts for offences committed under the Wildlife and Countryside Act1981.

The Urban Regen Team have significant experience dealing with invasive weeds on development projects as part of the overall remediation package.
