The Public Health Act 1889, Tasmania


The Public Health Act 1889 also known by its full title ‘An Act to further amend “The Public Health Act 1885″‘ (Act no. 53 Vict. No.39) made substantial changes to the regulation of new streets, buildings, ‘noxious’ trades, and cemeteries. Noxious trades included trades that generated high levels of what today we would call pollution or strong smells and included abattoirs, tanneries and soap factories. This legislation was repealed by the Public Health Act 1903 (Act no. 3 Edw. VII No.37) on 6 January 1904.
