Initial community consultation has now closed

Thank you for your feedback. We will develop a new General Purposes Local Law based on your input and legislative requirements. In mid-2022 will seek community submissions on the draft General Purposes Local Law.

General Purposes Local Law

From building sites, to rubbish, to pets – the General Purposes Local Law covers a wide range of topics. It empowers us to respond to local issues and protect public and private space as well as our community’s health and safety.

We have a legislative obligation to review and prepare a new local law every ten years and now the General Purposes Local Law is up for review. We would like your feedback and also invite you to share your ideas on other issues you think we should explore.

Feedback from this initial round of consultation will help us consider emerging issues and ensure the local law is relevant.

We will review the Open Air Burning provisions of the General Purposes Local Law separately in 2022 to ensure we are able to provide adequate focus and address community feedback.

How can I provide feedback on the General Purposes Local Law?

Have your say on the General Purposes Local Law by completing the survey or making a written submission.

We encourage you to provide your feedback to help us understand what's important to you. Your input will help to shape the new General Purposes Local Law.

Consumption of Liquor Local Law

A new Consumption of Liquor Local Law also needs to be prepared. This local law regulates consumption of alcohol on Shire-managed land. We will make some minor changes now so it's easier to understand with clearer maps and simplified wording.

Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law

The Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law regulates the use of short stay rental accommodation on the Peninsula. Although not yet due for renewal, we are considering minor amendments to streamline the registration process and make it easier to administer. An in-depth review is scheduled for 2023, where we will seek community input.
