Local Laws

The Local Government Act 1995 enables Western Australian local governments to make local laws which are considered necessary for the good government of their districts.

The City has enacted a number of local laws that govern activities on land that is owned or managed by the City, as well as certain activities conducted on private land within the City.

These local laws have the status of legislation and are enforceable by the City. The City may authorise officers to enforce the local laws on its behalf.

It is a requirement that local laws be reviewed every eight years. This ensures they remain current and suitable for their intended purpose.

All local laws currently open for public comment through formal submissions are listed below:
