The Proposed Changes

There are proposed minor changes throughout the Local Law Administrative Guidelines although the most significant of these changes occur in Part 2, Section 8 and relate to Trading Activities. These changes could affect Traders and Real Estate agents working within the municipality. Please note that the documents below should be read in conjunction with one another and it is only the Administrative guidelines that have been reviewed, not the Local Law.
