Council is reviewing local laws which govern dog off leash areas, real estate signage, permissible fires, high risk activities for works on a road and verge gardens – and is inviting the community to have its say.

Governance and Customer Service Portfolio Councillor Ted Hungerford said the community consultation period for the proposed local law changes would remain open for feedback until March 1.

“Local laws are statutory instruments of law which provide for the good governance of the many diverse communities within the Sunshine Coast region,” Cr Hungerford said.

“The proposed local law contains a number of amendments, including a new framework for the management of verge gardens; provisions for permissible fires that are aligned with council’s Planning Scheme; greater clarity and flexibility for short-term placement of real estate signage; increased public liability for high-risk activities for road works; and a number of newly established dog off-leash areas as well as minor changes to existing dog off-leash areas.”

Council encourages all Sunshine Coast residents to have a say on these proposed local law changes. You can find out more about these proposed local law changes  and submit your feedback via council’s website  or call 54757272 for more information.
