Local laws: what are they?
Local laws are designed to protect public health, safety, or amenity in our municipality. They aim to ensure that the actions of an individual or group do not have a negative or undesirable impact on the rest of the community.
Local Laws cannot duplicate, overlap, conflict with or be inconsistent with existing legislation, or any planning scheme.
If we intend to make a local law we must advertise it and consider any public submissions before implementing it. We must ensure that the way the law works involves the least burden or the greatest advantage to our community.
To make sure that local laws are current and valid, they have a 10-year life, then must be renewed.
