Proposed Local Law Amendment

Consultation has concluded

Council is committed to enforcing common-sense laws that improve the amenity and safety of the municipality and hold people accountable, that's why Council has proposed two important changes to the Local Law.

The first significant change is in response to safety and amenity issues relating to a commercial property in Hampton Park, Council recently sought investigation of measures available to address these issues in the future and after listening to residents we have proposed amendments to protect our municipality from unsafe and unsightly buildings.

Council proposes amending the Community Local Law, by inserting clauses specific to dilapidated buildings and increasing penalties through the application of various statutory measures available to Council.

Implementation would incentivise property owners to remedy safety and amenity concerns and result in outcomes that meet community expectations.

The second change is in relation to the use of Drones on Private Land, the proposed changes to the Local Law remove the requirement to obtain a permit if you wish to use a drone on private land. This decision followed extensive consultation with interested community groups at that time. For more information on drone use in the City of Casey, click this link.

Council as its meeting held on 4 June 2019 determined to amend the Community Local Law as proposed above, together with the setting of relevant penalties.

As part of the Local Law making process, a Notice has been published in the Government Gazette and local Newspaper inviting residents to make a submission relating to the proposed Local Law (Amendment)
