Local Orders Policy

This policy specifies the criteria that Council will consider when giving an order under the Local Government Act 1993.

Council has the power to issue orders to landowners and occupiers for a wide range of issues associated with environmental health and public safety.  The policy is used by Council and its staff to ensure that there is consistency in the criteria that are considered when an order may be issued.  Copies of the current policy are available via the link below.
