Template By-laws for Adaptation by Councils

In early 2009, the LGA commissioned Wallmans Lawyers to develop template or 'model' by-laws for Councils to adapt to their own circumstances. These template by-laws are now available on this website. The template by-laws are in 'Word' document form, for ease of adaptation. The six template by-laws represent those most commonly made by Councils: Permits and Penalties, Local Government Land, Roads, Moveable Signs, Dogs and Cats. There is also an Instruction Manual which explains how to use the template by-laws. To access the Instruction Manual or a template by-law, click on the attachments below.
