Are anti-encroachment laws just an excuse for poor environmental performance of industries or are they necessary to protect their future viability?

Aerosols, fumes, odour, particles and smoke can be a nuisance to residents and reduce amenity. Odour and dust are often the subject of resident complaints about industry and a range of factors, some out of the control of the industry, can contribute to impacts on residents. Res-Development-Nimby Anti-encroachment provisions were added in 2012 to the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. Councils throughout Queensland now frequently require Reverse Amenity assessments to be conducted as part of an Development Applications for residential subdivisions. So, what does a Reverse Amenity assessment look like? How can you ensure one is reliable? What are the risks and confounders?
