Local Laws Under Review

From time to time Council will review its local laws. Check here to find out what local laws are currently under review.

Local Law Amendments from the Draft Planning Scheme

As a result of changes in the Draft Logan Planning Scheme 2014, several local laws will require amending. These amendments will have little impact on the way Council administer these local laws.

The amendments are mainly updates to descriptions and definitions to ensure consistency with the draft planning scheme. 

The descriptions and definitions that Council use in its local laws must be consistent with the descriptions and definitions used in the planning scheme to ensure Council's ability to administer its local laws. 

If you wish to make a submission on the proposed amendments to the local laws,you will be required to make a submission via the draft planning scheme submission proces. This is because the proposed changes to local laws are a direct reflection of changes that have been proposed to the draft planning scheme.

Consultation is taking place on these local laws from 3 February 2014 to 30 April 2014:

What's changing? 

Animal management

Minor changes have been made to Subordinate Local Law No. 4.1 (Animal Management) 2002 to remove planning scheme references to kennels and catteries as these are not defined in the draft planning scheme.


Amendments to the licensing local law and the subordinate local laws are all minor and are either to update definitions or to ensure consistency with the draft planinng scheme.

Public health

Updates to zone descriptions and definitions within Local Law No. 10 (Public Health) 1999 and Subordinate Local Law No. 10.1 (Public Health) 1999 to bring them into line with the draft planning scheme.
