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.
