Role of TB Management Areas
Pest management under the TB Plan will be delivered through a framework of over 100 Tuberculosis Management Areas (TMAs) according to disease patterns, geographical features, control history, and future control needs. This will enable possum control and wildlife disease surveys to be planned and contracted in an efficient manner, and will provide a local focus for communications and consultation with land occupiers, communities and groups interested in or affected by our operations. Each TMA will have an approximate planned target date for eradication.

Each year OSPRI will publish a notice for each TMA, which will describe at local level any possum control or wildlife survey work planned for the coming year, as well as providing a forward view of further work that will be required to achieve TB eradication. These notices will be distributed to local landowners and interested parties, and will be readily available on-line or by request.
It is important to note that TMA notices do not replace formal notification of any specific past control operation. In particular, affected land occupiers will be further notified in writing and will also be contacted personally by our pest management contractors, well before commencement of any work.
If you have feedback on any of our planned pest control operations in your area please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
