Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said that the Local Law must be reviewed every 10 years, to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the community. "The purpose of this review is to identify what is working well in our current Local Law, any gaps in the legislation and new and emerging issues to be incorporated into the Local Law," Cr Whelan said.

One of the council's local law states that any waste bins awaiting collection must not be placed on the nature strip or any other place of collection outside the property boundary more than 24 hours prior to the collection day as specified by council

Feedback is being sought

The feedback period will run until Sunday, 13 February. The community can view the current Local Law, a Summary of Key Changes and provide feedback at Loca Law Review webpage. "We have created a Summary of Key Changes which identifies areas of the Local Law that we are looking to change, delete or add to. We welcome feedback on the proposed changes, as well as anything that is in our current Local Law or anything that you think may be missing. This will help us to draft a new Local Law that meets our community's needs," Cr Whelan said.

"Local Laws address local issues to improve public safety, enhance the liveability of our neighbourhoods and protect public assets. The Local Law covers a range of things - from unsightly land, roadside and footpath trading and planting on nature strips, to building sites. Local Laws affect everyone who lives, works or visits Bass Coast, so we encourage everyone to have their say on this important project." Cr Whelan said.

Opportunity to develop more efficient process

One of the proposed changes to the Local Law is to include Short Stay Accommodation. Previously, council registered Short Stay Accommodation under The Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 through the 'Holiday Home Registration' process.

The Local Law Review has provided the opportunity to develop a more streamlined and efficient process for the registering and management of Short Stay Accommodation. Following the feedback period, the information gathered will be used to draft the new Local Law. Community feedback will also be sought on the Draft document.
