Council's Local Laws and Subordinate Local Laws regulate various activities throughout the region.
About Local Laws
Under the Local Government Act 2009, local governments have two main roles:
- A local law making role; and
- An executive role, which includes:
- A policy-making role;
- An administrative role; and
- A local law enforcement role.
A Local Law is a law about a matter within the jurisdiction of the local government. A Subordinate Local Law is a law made by a local government about a matter that a Local Law expressly provides. Council employs a team of Local Laws officers to enforce legislation, thereby protecting community needs and ensuring the good rule and government of the area.
Should you have a matter or query please contact Council on 4189 9100.
An emergency 'call-out' service is available where a concern is of a serious nature and requires urgent attention outside normal office hours, for example livestock on the road or a dangerous dog attack.
For out of hours emergency call-outs please phone contact Council on 4189 9100.
Following is a list of Council's Local Laws and Subordinate Local Laws, which are also available to view on the Local Government and Planning website.
