Environmental Nuisance And Pollution
Environmental Nuisance and Pollution control involves the investigation and resolution of nuisance and pollution issues.
Property owners are responsible for ensuring that activities that occur on a property do not have a negative impact on neighbouring properties, residences and the environment.
The Health Act 1911 and Environmental Protection Act 1986 empower the Shire to issue notices in instances whereby a nuisance is deemed to be occurring.
The nature of environmental nuisance concerns investigated by the Environmental Health Section includes the following:
- Air Pollution
- Environmental Pollution
- Drainage Nuisance
- Odour Nuisance
- Sewerage Nuisance
If you have a concern in relation to the above about a neighbouring property or a property within the Shire contact the Shire’s Environmental Health Department on (08) 9168 4100.
