By-laws are local laws created by Council to manage issues specific to areas under the Council’s care and control. They help to effectively guide and support our local community in the use of public roads and spaces through regulating certain activities that take place in our community reserves and on our streets and footpaths.

Legislation requires that Local Government by-laws are reviewed every seven years.

As part of this review, Council are now inviting community feedback on the following draft by-laws:

  • By-law 1 – Permits and Penalties
  • By-law 2 – Roads
  • By-law 3 – Local Government Land
  • By-law 4 – Dogs
  • By-law 5 – Moveable Signs
  • By-law 6 – Waste Management

Copies of the draft by-laws and a summary of the proposed changes are provided in the Document Library on the right of this page.
