Local Laws

Local laws are designed to protect the community and local environment from health and safety concerns, and make living in the Southern Grampians Shire Council pleasant for all residents.

Local laws help you understand your rights and responsibilities, and promote understanding and cooperation.

All municipalities have a set of rules known as local laws, which are enforced by local laws officers. Our local laws may be different from the local laws in other municipalities.

Contact us to get in touch with our Local Laws Department with regards to complaints or queries relating to:

• Litter/rubbish dumping
• Parking
• Local Laws permits
• Unsightly land
• Excess Animals
• Wandering Livestock
• Abandoned vehicles
• Overhanging branches

Council's Local Laws and procedures manual are available below.

Fines and Infringements

Most of the infringement notices we issue are for serious, safety-related offences. You can find information about how to pay or appeal a parking fine on the back of your infringement notice, or see parking fines.

Please note, failure to take any action on an infringement will result in additional legal fees and the matter will be referred to Court resulting in possible conviction.

More information about different types of fines visit Fines Victoria.

Contesting an infringement notice

If you would like a review of your infringement notice, please provide all of the relevant information and any supporting documentation you request a review.

To apply, complete an application for review of infringement form, and submit by mail or email.

Alternatively you may send a request in writing to:
