About the webinar
EPA is excited to join forces with local government as we work together to protect Victoria’s environment and human health from the harmful effects of pollution and waste.
New environment protection legislation will commence on 1 July 2021. This is the most significant reform to Victoria's environment protection laws in the 50 years of EPA's existence. The new laws provide councils with a range of powers and there are important changes you should know about.
EPA is committed to providing Local Government with the necessary tools and information to help you fulfil your role as joint regulator.
This webinar covered the key areas Local Government has a regulatory role in under the Environment Protection Act 2017. This includes:
- On-site waste-water management systems (including septics)
- Residential noise
- Litter and other waste.
