A new draft Bill has been developed that provides local government with clearer responsibilities when dealing with environmental nuisances, and modernising litter regulation.

Here is a chance for you to have your say on the Bill.

This Bill has been developed to establish consistency in the management of nuisance across the state and also to provide the community with more effective local management of nuisance complaints. Additionally, the proposed modernisation of litter regulation includes tiered penalties for various types of littering (including higher penalties for illegal dumping offences) and applying responsibility for littering offences from vehicles to the owner of the vehicle. These reforms will support more effective use of surveillance of illegal dumping hotspots and public litter reporting.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved and have your say. Firstly, the EPA is conducting public consultation meetings across South Australia on behalf of the government as part of the consultation process.

Public consultation meetings were held in the following locations:

  • Victor Harbor: Monday, 3rd August 2015 – Eat @ Whalers (121 Franklin Parade, Encounter Bay)
