A policy is a statement of the Council’s position on a matter or issue, guiding the delivery of our services.
Policies are continually reviewed and updated. Whilst every effort is made to keep policies on this site up-to-date, council accepts no responsibility for any actions based on this information.
Bylaws are rules made by Council under the Local Government Act 2002 (the “Act”). They are created for the purpose of:
- Protecting the public from nuisance;
- Protecting, promoting, and maintaining public health and safety; and
- Minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.
Bylaws are also made to regulate activities such as solid waste and to manage, regulate and protect Council infrastructure from damage, misuse or loss, including the public water supply network and cemeteries.
We review our bylaws every few years to ensure they remain current and fit for purpose.
