I have a question about a local law open for community consultation. Who can I contact?
Please call the Town on 08 9311 8111 and ask to speak to the responsible officer. For detailed enquiries, we recommend that you contact the assessing officer to arrange a meeting time (during business hours) to discuss.
How will the public comments be considered?
The Town will be advertising the proposed changes to any of the local laws, prior to their formal adoption by the Council. The recommended changes may include the revision of existing local laws, the consolidation of multiple local laws into a revised single local law and/or the revocation of out-dated local laws that are no longer considered necessary.
The comments received during public advertising will be used to guide and inform further changes to any proposed measures, before they are considered for formal adoption by the Council.
Why is the Council reviewing its Local Laws?
The Council undertakes reviews of its existing Local Laws at least every eight years to ensure they are relevant, appropriate, effective and are up to date with current legislative requirements. From time to time the Council may decide to initiate an earlier review, an amendment to a current local law or create an entirely new local law. The document library for each policy review contains the relevant Minutes of the Ordinary Council Meeting at which the local law was considered. The Minutes include details of the specific outcomes of the review and the proposed changes that are being recommended.
