Local laws update

Council has proposed to base its local laws on a model developed by the State Government for all Queensland councils.

While expressed in a new format, the draft laws essentially cover Council’s existing laws, with most provisions unchanged. You can view the draft laws on our website.

At this stage, they are still with the State Government for review. We expect to receive this input within the next few weeks after which the laws, with any revisions, will be returned to Council seeking approval to begin the official community engagement process.

Following the consideration of community input, the new local laws are then expected to come back to Council for adoption early in 2015.
