Council's Policies


Bylaws are local laws or regulations, enforceable by Council staff or nominated agencies or staff.

Most bylaws are made under the Local Government Act 2002. Some other Acts also empower the Council to make bylaws on specific topics, and the bylaws may be supported by accompanying policies.

Our bylaws cover a wide range of Council functions.

When making, amending or revoking a bylaw, we consult with the public before making a decision.
