By-Laws background

Council creates by-laws (local laws) to manage Council-specific issues. Many by-laws are in place to protect the comfort and safety of our community, or to prevent damage to Local Government Land. Many by-laws we cannot change, however some can be adjusted based on feedback from the community. Our By-Laws are due to expire on 1 January 2023.

Stage 1 of this review involved consultation with the community to help shape the drafting of the By-laws. Community consultation was undertaken between 6 October and 29 November 2021 through the Have Your Say Page.

As a result of the consultation, 8 draft By-laws have been prepared by Council’s Lawyers. The By-laws have been amended to reflect legislative changes, remove ambiguity, and facilitate effective enforcement of the By-laws, and address potential shortcomings in the current By-laws to ensure they meet the needs of both the Council and broader community.

Note: The by-law review process does not include a review into our on- and off-leash rules for dogs. A separate consultation is reviewing this.

Public Consultation Policy: Please note name and address are required to comply with Council’s Public Consultation Policy. All submissions will be treated as public documents upon receipt. Individuals will not be identified publicly without permission.

Closing the loop: The City of PAE will make efforts to 'close-the-loop' with project contributors and followers. We may occasionally send information to acknowledge a contribution, provide key updates on engagement and project processes and outcomes.
