Proposal to create Governance Local Law No. 1 of 2018

The proposed Governance Local Law No.1 of 2018 has been developed in consultation with Councillors, and has been formally endorsed for public consultation.

The objective of the proposed Local Law is to provide for the orderly conduct of Council Meetings, election of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor and use of Council’s common seal. If adopted, the new Governance Local Law No. 1 of 2018 will replace the existing Governance Local Law No. 1 of 2015.


Any person may make a submission to the proposed Governance Local Law No. 1 of 2018.

All submissions received on or before Monday, 30 July 2018 will be considered by Council in accordance with section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989.

Any person making a submission is entitled to request (in the submission itself) to be heard at a Council meeting in support of the submission, either in person or by a person acting on his or her behalf. Notice of the meeting date and time will be given to each person who has lodged a submission.

Submissions should be addressed to:
