Environmental Health

The Shire’s Environmental Health Service monitors a wide range of activities that have the potential to impact on the living standards and the health of our community.

The Health Act 1911 empowers and places responsibility on local government to administer the Act, its regulations and local laws within the district. This empowerment attracts an accompanying liability to ensure these duties are fulfilled in a professional and reasonable manner.
