From pets to playgrounds to waste to signage, the City of Unley By-laws are established to ensure that Council can respond to issues within the local area and assist us in protecting the convenience, comfort and safety of our community.
Councils have the power to establish By-laws under the Local Government Act 1999.
By-laws must be reviewed every seven years to ensure they are relevant, meet the needs and expectations of our community, and are up to date with current legislative requirements.
The below By-laws were made by Council on 27 June 2022 following consultation with the community. The By-laws came into effect on 21 November 2022.
A by-law to create a permit system for Council By-laws, to fix maximum and continuing penalties for offences, and to clarify the construction of Council By-laws.
