Unit Two Investigation VISUAL POLLUTION

Visual pollution only occurs in some parts of Australia. Visual pollution has now become a law by the council due to businesses advertising on busy roads which distract the drivers. However even if your car was parked in a shopping centre car park and had a for sale sign on the back of your car this will be braking the law! I chose visual pollution because it really effects my workplace. We are not aloud to advertise off our property and if we do it’s a fine of $1000 an hour. I wanted to go deeper in this investigation and find out why, and does it really confirm pollution because I know I don’t get polluted by seeing a road sign.

The features covered by visual pollution policy include:

1.factories
2.sheds
3.buildings
4. Fences
5.Signs
6.landscaping
7.equipment
8.Graffiti
9.stroed unsightly material
10.ageing construction
11.any other unsightly material considered a problem by the Council.

The government cut down your taxes if you pay for something that will make you money. If you buy something for your business you would not be taxed on it. If you by a adverting sign and walk down the road with it ( advertising your business) it will be against the law. This was clearly said in the taxpayer office.

Is the taxpayer entitled to a deduction under subsection 40-755(1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997) for vegetating an area used in their income earning activities for the purposes of providing a visual effect and preventing erosion?

Decision

No. The taxpayer is not entitled to a deduction for the cost of vegetating an area under subsection 40-755(1) of the ITAA 1997, as the expenditure is not in relation to an eligible environmental protection activity.

The government care for the environment. By penalising the offender should stop the pollution and it did work because my boss never advertised again. Any
