By-law Public Consultation

The Kingborough Acting Mayor, Jo Westwood said the Council was calling for public submissions on four proposed By-laws.

“Most of our operations as a Council are regulated or guided by a range of related legislation, regulations, by-laws and policies,” Cr Westwood said.

“These are to provide for the health, safety and welfare of our community.

“These ensure the interests of the community are represented and provide for good governance within our municipality.

“These proposed By-laws will govern how community members operate and use marine facilities, protect the community in matters relating to public and environmental health, regulate the use of recreational facilities and ensure that roads and parking areas are appropriate.”

The proposed By-laws are:
● Marine Facilities By-law No.1 of 2021
● Health and Environmental Services By-law No.2 of 2021
● Parks, Recreation and Natural Areas By-law No.3 of 2021
● Roads and Parking By-law No.4 of 2021

Copies of the proposed By-laws and their regulatory impact statements can be found here and by searching for Proposed Council By-Laws.

Submissions can be made in writing to or sent via post to Kingborough Civic Centre, 15 Channel Hwy, Kingston, Tasmania, 7050.
