A council can adopt local laws to protect public health, safety, or amenity in a municipality. They are designed to support community wellbeing and to ensure the actions of an individual or group do not have a negative or undesirable impact on the rest of the community.
Local laws complement or help to implement other legislation. They are subservient to state and federal laws: that is, a local law cannot duplicate or contradict federal or state law.
Council has made the following local laws, which apply to the municipality of Moira Shire Council, under the powers provided by section 111 of the Local Government Act 1989.
