Local Nuisance & Litter Control

Operating under the new Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016, Council now has greater tools to assist members of our community that may find themselves at the detriment of Local Nuisance issues that unreasonably interfere with the enjoyment of amenity of an area. Such as:

  • Excessive noise
  • Dust
  • Smoke
  • Unsightly / unsanitary conditions
  • Odour

Littering and Illegal Dumping is a highly visible form of polluting the environment, that causes amenity and health issues within our community. It is also a costly exercise for the Council and private land holders to clean –up the litter and dumpsites. Again the new Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 has provided more tools for Council to pursue those responsible for littering or illegally dumping.

For further information or to report a Local Nuisance Issue or Illegal Dumping please contact the Northern Areas Council on 08 8664 1139.
