There are a number of invasive alien plants overtaking the countryside in the UK but the conservative estimated cost from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for dealing with Japanese Knotweed in the UK is in the region of £1.56 billion. It is also estimated that at the current growth rate there will be 1200 hectares of Japanese Knotweed in Wales by the end of 2020. Japanese Knotweed can grow anywhere and travels along waterways and spreads across boundaries from different local authority areas suggesting the need for a cross boundary and multi-agency approach.
Japanese Knotweed has been given particular attention by local authorities because of the cost associated with attempting to stop its spread. There is no legislation, which requires the Council to actively control Japanese Knotweed, and the responsibility usually rests with landowners and tenants of any land.
