Local laws and subordinate laws


Local laws and subordinate local laws

Local laws help govern issues within the region including parking, animal management and waste management. Under the Local Government Act 2009, Council has the authority to make and enforce local laws.

There is a type of local law called a subordinate local law which provides in more detail, the principles contained in a local law.
