We put our Local Laws under the microscope to ensure our regulations consider the contemporary needs, expectations and lifestyles of our communities.

Between March 2021 and June 2023, across three phases of engagement, we received 21,000+ responses from stakeholders and community members. This incredible amount of input from you helped us draft and then refine the proposed Local Laws.

Now Council’s biggest ever review of our Local Laws is wrapping up.

We want to again thank everyone who participated in the process - it wouldn't have been possible without you.

We are currently reviewing the submissions received on the proposed Local Laws (the third and final engagement phase) and determining if any adjustments need to be made to the laws. Pending the outcomes of this review, the laws will be considered by Council for adoption and commencement.

Once adopted the Local Laws will replace the outdated and conflicting Local Laws of the past with a new fit-for-purpose suite that better reflect the needs and lifestyles of the residents of City of Moreton Bay.

The future announcement of the adoption will be published in the Queensland Government Gazette and on Council’s website in accordance with the Local Government Act 2009. The documents will be made available on Council’s website and for inspection and purchase at Customer Service Centres in the city.

Status of Local Law matters under review

**Council received a strong response during community consultation for the proposed Maintenance of Works in Waterway Areas Local Law. As a result, we are spending more time considering in detail the feedback and specific issues raised. So, the progression of that proposed Local Law will not follow the same timeline as the rest of the Local Laws being reviewed as part of this project.
