Local Law Review Update

Council's Local Laws are currently under review. Since de-amalgamation, several inconsistencies and concerns have been identified, in particular, some laws currently reference Yeppoon and surrounding suburbs as being part of our local government area. This review will rectify these inconsistencies and modernise our laws. 

This review has been broken into two stages. Stage 1 has now been completed and effective as of 11 December 2018. The documents part of stage 1 are listed below;
