Environmentally Relevant Activities

An Environmentally Relevant Activity (ERA) is an activity that is required to be approved by either the City of Gold Coast or State Government due to its potential to damage or pollute the environment (air, land, water and noise).

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) and other state government agencies regulate higher risk activities whilst local councils regulate activities with only localised pollution potential.

For information regarding who needs approval, visit Council's Knowledge Network - Toolbox.
