Local Orders Policy

The Local Orders Policy outlines matters that need to be considered in issuing an Order.

It ensures that everyone understands their responsibilities in protecting the enjoyment, quality and safety of residential neighbourhoods, centres and the environment.

Orders relate to:

  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Surface water
  • Removing objects from a public place
  • Nuisance animals
  • Food preparation, storage and handling

Issuing an order is not mandatory and is at the discretion of the Council's authorised investigating officer.
