Pollution and Environmental Harm

Many activities have impacts on the environment.  Some of these impacts are authorised by permits (where the council or government has decided that the impacts can be managed, or that the community benefits of the activity outweigh the risks associated with those impacts).  Other impacts occur without authorisation, resulting from accidents, negligence or deliberate breaches of the law.

Domestic Noise

You should always try to be respectful of your neighbours when using power tools, playing music or having a party.  The Environmental Management and Pollution Control (Noise) Regulations set out some rules for how loud equipment can be, and the hours during which you can use it.
