Proposed Local Laws and Amendments


The City is undertaking a review of a range of local laws, ranging from standing orders, parking and parking facilities, waste management, health, public spaces, local government property, signage and fencing.

The Local Government Act 1995 enables local government to make local laws that are necessary for the good government of their area. The types of laws made by local governments cover areas such as car parking, activities on thoroughfares, public places and council and committee meetings.

The City invites public submissions for all new proposed local laws, or any amendments to any local laws, for a minimum of 42 days. Your Voice Nedlands will contain all notices and proposals, information about the status and progress of the City’s changing local laws, and provide you with the opportunity to provide feedback by making a submission or asking us a question relating to all local law proposals as each law is completed to draft stage.
