CURRENT LOCAL LAWS
PROPOSED NEW OR AMENDMENT LOCAL LAWS
Following a review of local laws, Council has resolved to make the following local law:
This Local Law will repeal and replace the Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup Standing Orders Local Law 1999. The period for public submissions about this proposed local law closed on 31 March 2017.
The following local laws will go to Council for adoption on 27 April 2017.
** Waste Local Law – Since the introduction of the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery (WARR) Act in 2007, the management of household refuse has come under this Act, rather than the Health Act. While transition arrangements have been in place since 2007, these no longer apply, following changes to State Health legislation. This Local Law would automatically revoke Section 4.2 of the Shire’s Health Local Laws 1999 (Disposal of Refuse).
***Animals, Environment and Nuisance Local Law – This local law shifts a number of provisions currently in the Shire’s Health Local Law, from under the Health Act 1911 to the Local Government Act. The new Public Health Act 2016 repeals much of the out-dated Health Act, as well as the Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1911, which allowed local governments to make health local laws – hence these changes are necessary. This proposed new local law includes the provisions of the Disposal of Refuse, Rubbish and Disused Materials Local Law and the Miscellaneous Provisions Local Law, which would be automatically repealed when it is adopted.
