It is natural that in the course of day to day living that some activities may result in noise, dust, and other effects, that may affect those living with you or on other nearby properties. While it is acceptable for some activities to be undertaken that may produce, noise, smoke, dust, fumes, odours, or accumulations of solid or liquid waste, there is also a responsibility to ensure that they are within legal limits and do not adversely affect surrounding properties. Similarly, residents should ensure that activities on their land do not result in the breeding or attraction of pests.

If you are experiencing problems with a neighbour’s activity please refer to the information in the following link. Amongst this information you will also find a Health Investigation Request Form which you will need to complete if you would like assistance from the City’s Health Service in resolving any issue.
