By-Laws

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.
