Controlling Dust from Development Sites

The Fraser Coast region is experiencing a long, dry summer and dust complaints from development sites are on the rise.

Dust arising from development sites can be considered a nuisance when;

  • it is settling on surfaces and possessions;
  • affecting visibility; or
  • negatively impacting health or wellbeing of nearby residents.

Refer to controlling dust from development sites fact sheet (PDF,314kB) outlining responsibilities and best practice for the development industry in controlling dust from development sites.

Further information is available from Councils Development Assessment Team by phoning 1300 79 49 29 or in person at the Hervey Bay or Maryborough Customer Service Centres.
