The Sunshine Coast Council Local Laws and Subordinate Local Laws were first adopted on 1 January 2012.


Council is committed to carrying out regular reviews of the local laws. A review provides an opportunity to look at the issues and impacts of the laws and propose any suitable amendments.

Community engagement

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposed amendments to the local laws had until close of business 30 November 2015 to prepare and send their submission to council.
