Draft Guideline on Recommended Land Use Separation Distances

26 Jun 2017

The Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) has released the draft Guideline: Recommended Land Use Separation Distances for public consultation.

The draft guideline identifies suggested separation distances for different land use activities which may potentially establish in the Northern Territory. Separation distances support land use planning and pollution control regulation by providing an additional means to minimise potential for conflict between land use activities with the potential for off-site emissions and adjacent sensitive uses.

The separation distances recommended in the draft guideline are intended to provide greater certainty for all persons that may be involved in approving or undertaking activities that may be incompatible with existing land uses, and those persons who may be impacted by these types activities, about the NT EPA’s expectations and approaches to managing complaints resulting from incompatible land uses.

The draft guideline and information about making a submission are available on the NT EPA website at: 

Submissions close Wednesday 9 August 2017. 

All comments on the draft guideline will be collated and made publicly available on the NT EPA website. If you do not want your comments or parts of your comments, or your identity made publicly available, you should clearly indicate this in your submission.
