From unsightly land to fire safety and animals, City of Whittlesea’s Local Law reflect the community’s views on how we want to show respect for one another, protect our people, local environment, and make living in the City of Whittlesea A Place For All.


Council have a legislative obligation under the Local Government Act 2020 to review our Local Law every 10 years to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the community and address any new or emerging issues.

The current Local Law is set to expire in December 2024. This means that it will no longer be valid or enforceable. As such, a new Local Law must be made and will be known as the Community Local Law 2024.


The objectives of the Community Local Law are:

What is the Local Law Review?

Council is undertaking a review of the Local Law to ensure it is consistent with other legislation and manages current and/or emerging issues. The focus of this review will be on improving clarity, accountability, accessibility, transparency, safety and amenity. So you will have a say and understand your Local Law and love where you live.

The City of Whittlesea held an internal review and identified nine key issues. We want to understand the level of community support on these identified key issues. As this will be a new Local Law we also want to consult with you to understand any other ideas or issues of concern.
