Who should apply
New works approval
Any business establishing an activity that does not require development approval may be required to obtain an EPA works approval before applying for a licence.
The new works approval application is similar to a development application. It consists of an environmental assessment carried out for the EPA before it considers a licence application.
A business or person undertaking an activity that will generate excessive pollution may require an EPA exemption. Pollution includes noise, dust, smoke, odour, water, waste or stormwater.
Exemptions are a form of environmental authorisation. The proposed activity is assessed in terms of the risk of potential harm to the environment and human health.
