Nuisances & Keeping of Animals

Public health legislation exists to govern nuisances by way of odour and their potential to be injurious or dangerous to health. This can take the form of malfunctioning septic tank systems, keeping animals in such a way so to create a foul odour or attract pests, as well as any form of accumulation that in itself creates a nuisance or attracts or harbours pests.

Health Local Laws have been implemented to specifically outline how certain activities may be carried out so as to minimize any potential impact to any neighbouring properties.

Environmental Health

The role of the Shire of Narrogin's Environmental Health Officers is to manage the public environmental health risks in the areas such as food safety, development control, disease control, pollution control and community living. Where acceptable standards are not maintained the officers assume an enforcement role.
