Glen Eira City Council Local Law Review 2019

Written submissions are now closed.

The next stage in the Local Law Review is for Council to receive the written submissions on the proposed Local Laws in accordance with section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989.

We are reviewing our local laws to make them easier to understand and more user-friendly for the wider community.

The current Glen Eira City Council Local Law 2009 is to be revised and remade as two separate Local Laws:

  • the Glen Eira City Council Community Local Law 2019 (proposed Community Local Law); and
  • the Glen Eira City Council Meeting Procedure Local Law 2019 (proposed Council Meeting Procedure) (together the proposed Local Laws).

The majority of changes are intended to make the Local Laws easier to understand and more user-friendly for the local community, including by streamlining language, reorganising sections, and removing anomalies.

We are consulting the community on the proposed Local Laws and their incorporated documents, namely the:

  • Councillor Questions
  • Written Public Questions to Council
  • Public Participation at Ordinary Council Meetings
  • Residential Parking Permit System
  • Mobile Garbage Bins, Recycling Containers and Organics Containers
  • Building Site Management Code of Practice
  • Nature Strip Planting Guidelines

Before the proposed Local Laws and incorporated documents are finalised, any person has a right to make a written submission.

All feedback is due by 5 pm on Friday 19 July 2019.

You can view, download and save the proposed Local Laws, incorporated documents and the Community Impact Statements from the Document Library (to the right).
