HAVE YOUR SAY ON DOGS, PARKING AND LOCAL LAWS
Residents of the Redlands and the islands can now have their say on dogs, parking and other proposed local law amendments.
All members of the community are invited to have their say on a collection of draft local law amendments put before a recent Redland City Council’s General Council meeting.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the amendments were the first to be considered since the adoption of an entire new suite of local laws in 2015 based on the State Governments model local laws.
“Suggestions for the latest batch of draft amendments were received from various sources and span a number of topics including the keeping of cats and dogs, shipping containers, shopping trolley removal and new regulated parking areas,” Cr Williams said.
“While some of the proposed amendments are purely administrative, others will have a direct impact on various members of our community.
“Community consultation is always the first step in our local law amendment process and your opportunity to provide feedback on potential changes that may affect you.
“All properly made submissions received during the 37 day consultation period – 23 May to 29 June – will be considered, before a report and revised draft amendments are returned to Council for further consideration. Should they be endorsed by Council the drafts will be submitted for review by the State Government.”
Some of the proposed changes include: regulate objects not defined as a building; cats and tags; animal permits; fencing; shopping trolleys; bird feeding criteria and off-street parking areas.
