Know your new Local Laws


GREATER Shepparton City Council has endorsed both Local Law No.1 Community Living and Local Law No.2 Procedures for Council Meeting and Common Seal in its June Ordinary Council Meeting.

A Greater Shepparton City Council spokesperson said, “Local Law No. 1 is important as its purpose is to provide for the peace, order and good government of Greater Shepparton and covers issuing of permits and infringement notices and the prohibiting, regulating and controlling of various activities.

“Local Law No. 2 sets the rules for the conduct of Council meetings and the use of the common seal and is a very important part of our governance framework.

“The process for reviewing the Local Laws commenced almost 12 months ago and involved a lot of consultation with the councillors, staff and the community.”
