Environmental Protection (Noise) Policy 1997

Beneficial assets

5.(1) A “beneficial asset” is an airport, approved industrial estate, navigable waterway, public road or railway.

(2) It is recognised that, although the operation or use of beneficial assets may have significantly adverse effects on the environmental values, they are necessary for the community’s environmental, social and economic wellbeing.

(3) However, it is intended that, so far as practicable, any significantly adverse effects from their use or operation be progressively reduced.

(Note: Progressively REDUCED not INCREASED)
