Legislation and Local Laws

The principal legislation governing the establishment and operation of local Councils in Victoria is the Local Government Act 1989 and the new Local Government Act 2020 which commenced in four stages from April 2020, May 2020, October 2020 and July 2021.

A number of Regulations and Local Laws have been developed to support the Act. In addition to the Local Government Act, Council has a range of responsibilities under both State and Federal legislation.
