Ask a question about the Local Law      

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

We’re hosting a virtual Q&A session to answer questions about Bayside’s proposed Local Law at 6pm on Thursday 18 February 2021. This is an information session to help our community understand proposed changes and how they may affect them.

The proposed Local Law was drafted in response to community feedback and legal advice. Major changes include:

  • A smoke-free foreshore and alcohol-free zone at Red Bluff Cliffs 
  • Preventing long-term parking of boats, trailers and caravans on Council roads
  • Stronger environmental and amenity protection requirements for building sites
  • Permits to fly drones over Council land 
  • Preventing abandoned shopping trolleys
  • Permits for share bike and/or e-scooter schemes
  • Permits for advertising signs and mobile billboards
  • Guidelines for planting on nature strips

Please submit your question here by 15 February 2021 to ensure it’s included in the Q&A session. The session will be streamed live on the Have Your Say website from 6pm on 18 February 2021. If you can't watch the session live, a video recording and summary will be published on the project page following the session.

Consultation on the proposed Local Law is open until 5pm on 5 March 2021. Feedback must be provided as a written statement in accordance with Section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989. You can read more about the proposed Local Law and find out how to submit your feedback here.
