5.5.9 Air Quality


  1. The emission of air impurities is to be strictly controlled in accordance with the Clean Air (Plant & Equipment) Regulation and must not exceed the prescribed standard concentration and emission rates.
  2. Where there are no standards prescribed by the Regulation, any activity, or the operation of any plant, must be carried out by such means necessary to prevent or minimise air pollution.
  3. Applications for new development must include full plans and specifications of any required air pollution control equipment. The application must demonstrate that the development meets the requirements of the Regulations or other relevant standards. Council may also require monitoring of an activity to verify that the emission of air impurities complies with the relevant requirements.
  4. In accordance with the Protection of the Environment Operations Act and Regulations, some developments may require a license with respect to air emissions from the EPA.
