Emissions into the air can cause a nuisance to neighbours and interfere with their normal daily activities. If severe enough, it can even impact on peoples health and the environment.
Should you have a problem with air emissions, always attempt to discuss the issue directly with the person responsible for the nuisance in order to try and achieve a solution. Give them an appropriate time frame to do something about it. If the situation has not changed after that time, it may then be necessary to contact the appropriate authority.
Council only has jurisdiction to act on certain air pollution issues, and shares the responsibility of air emissions with other government bodies. Please refer to the information below which outlines authorities for various air emission types.
