Draft Local Law Council Meeting Summary: 12 October 2021
At last night’s online Council Meeting, community members made verbal presentations on the Draft Local Law as part of the ongoing consultation process.
When making a submission on the Draft Local Law last year, 175 submitters elected the option to present their submission verbally to Councillors. Following the release of the updated Draft Local Law in September, Council contacted these submitters to provide them with the updated document and confirm if they still wished to make a verbal presentation at the meeting.
Last night, Councillors heard from 10 submitters who took up the opportunity. These verbal presentations reflected two of the main areas of feedback Council received during the written submission period on the original Draft Local Law: the keeping of animals and the use of motorbikes on private land.
Following the hearing of the verbal submissions, Council will now consider any further changes, with the final Local Law No. 1 to be presented for adoption at a Council Meeting later in the year.
