Bylaws are local legislation, enforceable by either Council staff or other nominated agencies.  In most cases, Council makes bylaws under the Local Government Act 2002 and they are generally made for one or more of the following purposes:

  • protecting the public from nuisance
  • protecting, promoting, and maintaining public health and safety
  • minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.

Our bylaws cover a wide range of Council functions. When making, amending or revoking a bylaw, we consult with the public before making a decision.
