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.
