Permits

Subsidies

Permits are required for landholders to possess and use registered 1080 or strychnine products for vertebrate animal control on leasehold or freehold land.

A fee of $82.50 (GST inclusive) will apply for assessment and processing of a Restricted Chemical Product Permit.

A fee of $41.25 will apply for permit amendments.

The PHBG is able to subsidise the cost of a Restricted Chemical Product Permit for landholders in our operational area.

Through partnership with the Coolup LCDC landholders can also have their 1080 product costs subsidised for fox control within the PHBG operational area.

Once a landholder has completed and passed the online restricted chemical product training they can make an appointment with a PHBG Officer to fill in the application at the Waroona Landcare Office.

Appointments can be made by emailing feralanimals@phbg.org

1080 Baiting

Please note there are minimum requirements for baiting.

You must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have completed and passed the online restricted chemical product training.
  • Your property must be greater than 10 hectares or 25 acres.
  • Baiting must be a minimum of 150m from any dwelling.
  • Your property must be located outside an urban zone.
  • Your property must be outside a town water catchment area.
  • The restricted chemicals (1080 or strychnine) must be safely stored and locked in a cabinet.

Soft Jaw Traps

You require this permit if you live in a built up area or special rural zone.

Property size too small?

Landholders that don't meet the minimum size requirements for a 1080 permit can combine properties with neighbours to reach the threshold. The PHBG can coordinate a community baiting program with a number of interested neighbours to allow them a wider range of choice when controlling feral animals.
