Local laws enable Council's to identify local issues that are important to the community and put controls in place to ensure public safety, amenity and protection of natural and community assets. 

Council creates local laws that apply to its municipal district through the Local Government Act 1989.

Local laws must not be inconsistent with other legislation or regulation or duplicate any matters contained within a planning scheme.

Local laws determine when activities require permits for residents and others.
