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.
2017 Bylaw reviews
We are required to review most of our bylaws at least every ten years. This year we are reviewing two of our bylaws:
- Parking and Traffic Bylaw
- Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw
Council is now proposing to revoke these bylaws and replace them with new ones. Consultation on the proposed bylaws has now closed. Council will hear submitters, hold deliberations and determine the final format of each bylaw by mid December this year. For further information follow the links below to each bylaw page.
