By Laws

We’re asking the community to have their say on Council’s By-Laws as part of a review process undertaken every seven years.

The Local Government Act 1999 and other Acts provide Council with the ability and authority to make by-laws for the good rule and government of the area, and for the convenience, comfort and safety of its community. By-Laws may have clauses that prohibit, regulate, control, restrict or require permits for certain activities.

By-Laws are legally enforceable within the Council area and penalties can apply for breaches or conduct that is contrary to the requirements of by-laws. All by-laws are reviewed every 7 years and the review and or development of by-laws requires public consultation that ensures consideration of public feedback.
