Local Laws

Council makes and enforces local laws to help ensure that people are considerate of each others' right to live peacefully and privately. Local laws may be made in response to legislation, or may be made in consultation with the community to meet local needs.

Council’s authorised officers educate the community about the various state and local laws administered by Council, and promote compliance with them so our city continues to be a pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Current local laws

Printed copies of local law documents are available from council at a cost of $22 per set. A copy of the local laws can be viewed at  the libraries and customer service centres.
