By-law Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

The Local Government Act 1999 (the Act) gives councils the power to establish By-laws for the regulation of a number of activities, processes and actions within the municipal area of the Council. These By-laws relate to the functions and powers of Council, and the degree of control Council may exercise.

Under the Act, Council By-laws must be reviewed every seven (7) years. The current suite of Alexandrina Council By-laws will expire on 1 January 2017.

A mandatory part of the procedure for making a By-law requires the draft By-laws be released for public consultation.

Two public information sessions regarding the By-laws will be held at the following times:

  • Goolwa Council Chambers, 11 Cadell Street, Goolwa, 7pm to 8pm, Wednesday 15 June 2016
  • Strathalbyn Library, Angas Room, 1 Coleman Terrace, Strathalbyn, 7pm to 8pm, Thursday 16 June 2016

Written submissions regarding Alexandrina Council By-laws will be accepted by Council until 5pm, Friday 1 July 2016.

Please direct all written submissions to alex@alexandrina.sa.gov.au or by post to The Chief Executive, PO Box 21, Goolwa SA 5214 or fill out the online form here.

For further information please call Anne Liddell, Manager, Governance and Strategy on 8555 7000.
