Adopted local laws
As part of its legislative functions, Council is able to make local laws as a way of providing good governance to the community and which reflect current community standards and expectations. This legislative role allows Council to adopt a regulatory regime that may be enforced through the courts, by the issue of infringement notices or by performing other functions or activities to enforce the local laws.
The Local Government Act 1995 outlines the process by which the Council may adopt local laws. The process for making a local law provides the community with a six-week advertising period to allow opportunity for comment on proposed local law.
