Bylaws are rules or regulations made by the Council, under national legislation, that affect how people live, work and play. Bylaws protect both our district and your rights. They are there to make our district a safe and healthy place.
Bylaws are broadly made to cover one or more of the following purposes:
- Protecting the public from nuisance
- Protecting, promoting, and maintaining public health and safety
- Minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.
Not complying with a bylaw can result in fines, seizure of property and remedial action. Bylaws can be enforced by our staff or external agencies such as the police.
If you would like any additional information regarding the bylaws, contact our Policy team at email@example.com.
