Council is seeking feedback on its proposed Community Local Law 2023.

Council is proposing to make a new Community Local Law 2023, which will supersede and replace the Community Local Law 2018 (“current Local Law”) and the Asset Protection Local Law 2016 (“Asset Protection Local Law”).

The objectives of the proposed Community Local Law 2023 are to:

  • provide for the peace, order and good government of the municipal district;
  • apply a uniform and fair administration of this Local Law;
  • promote a physical and social environment free from hazards to health, in which the residents of the municipal district can enjoy a quality of life that meets the general expectations of the community; and
  • prevent and manage nuisances which may adversely affect the enjoyment of life within the municipal district or the health, safety and welfare of persons within the municipal district.
  • enhance opportunities for increased economic activity by businesses in the municipal district

and to achieve these objectives by:

  • regulating and managing activities of people within the municipal district which may be dangerous, unsafe or detrimental to the quality of life of other people in, or the environment of, the municipal district; and
  • providing standards and conditions for specified activities to protect the safety and the welfare of people within, and the environment of, the municipal district.
