Local laws play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and amenity of our shire. A new local law has been drafted to ensure that we are dealing with today’s issues and being mindful of what may occur in the future.
The local law looks at many issues, from how many animals can be kept on a property, to where you can camp and what items can be placed on footpaths.
The draft local law has a number of differences to the existing local law and the main changes have been highlighted in the draft Community impact statement.
The main changes centre around.
- Those who provide shopping trolleys are required to take actions to reduce the likelihood of them being taken away and dumped or left on the streets
- Owners and occupiers of land to have responsibility for maintaining the nature strip in-front of their property
- Conditions to be met for the placement of shipping containers
- Riding of vehicles on private land
- Reducing Councils requirements with regard to commercial and industrial noise
- Requirements regarding camping on private land.
