By-laws are local-laws created by Council to manage issues specific to areas under our care and control – from pets to waste, trees to signage and boats.

Some by-laws are in place to protect the comfort and safety of our community while others seek to prevent damage to local government land.

We review our by-laws every 7 years to ensure they meet the current needs of our community.

There are some things we cannot create by-laws for example things that are the responsibility of state or federal government.

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