Local Laws

Local Laws are enforceable rules made by local governments to apply within their district. They help to establish and maintain the quality of life in line with the expectations of the local community and provide a standard under which businesses, residents and ratepayers must conduct their activities.

Local Laws support higher legislation (Acts of Parliament) to control and manage the more basic matters that affect the community. They can be helpful in the resolution of disputes, as well as achieving effective government.
