You will require this permit if you intend to vary your Environment Management Plan (EMP).
EMP's plans 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 odors and fumes.
The owner or occupier of the premises may apply to the Council to vary the 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.
