Have your say on Victoria’s new pollution laws
October 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Victoria’s new pollution control laws – the Environment Protection Amendment Act 2017 – will come into force next year. These are the laws designed to control pollution of our air, water and land. This is the single greatest overhaul of environment protection legislation in Victoria since the Environment Protection Act came into force in 1970!
The EPA has released draft regulations for public consultation until 31 October. Regulations are critical to how the Act will work in practice. This seminar will help you understand how the regulations will manage air pollution, water issues, climate, and waste, so that you can make a submission.
The session will also give a brief overview of the Act and how the new general environment duty will operate and will allow time for audience questions.
Dr. Cathy Wilkinson, CEO of the Victorian EPA
Brendan Sydes, CEO of Environmental Justice Australia
