Local Laws

The City of Bunbury endorses several state and local government regulations to protect the health, safety and harmony of our community.

The Local Government Act permits each local government to make local laws to assist in carrying out its functions and powers in its district. These laws deal with a wide range of community, environmental and governance issues.

The City of Bunbury operates under local laws which have been developed and introduced to help control certain types of industries and activities for the protection and benefit of residents.  These laws are reviewed every eight years but can be reviewed and amended at any time. It should be noted that any contravention of these local laws can lead to prosecution.
