Local Law sets out what kind of animals and how many animals you can keep, which animals need to be registered and what Council can do if you don’t comply with the Local Law.
For example, under the Local Law:
- you can only have one dog per dwelling in a multi-unit complex
- if you live on an allotment greater than 301m2 but less than 599m2 you can only have a second dog if you obtain approval from Council
- you can keep a rooster on an allotment greater than 6,000m2
- you cannot keep a duck, sheep or goat on land less than 3,000m2.
