The owner or occupier of premises may apply to the Council to vary the Environment Management Plan (EMP) that applies to their premises where they believe that, because of the nature of the activities conducted at the premises, the EMP currently in force is not appropriate.
EMPs promote responsible management of the environment throughout the municipality. Activities which may require you to vary your EMP include:
- waste management and disposal
- open fires
- creating noise
- creating strong odours and fumes.
