Local Laws

Local Laws

Whilst not receiving much fanfare, Beck Legal understands that local laws are a vital tool for local councils in developing municipality specific controls that are not regulated through State and Federal legislation.

The team at Beck Legal understands this and bring our extensive knowledge of both metropolitan and regional councils to provide solutions via local laws which are tailored and responsive to the specific needs of the particular council and not just some cookie cutter approach to drafting such an important tool for local councils.

The team at Beck Legal are experienced in assisting councils through the review and implementation process from simply reviewing draft local laws and advising through to a more wholistic approaching including developing strategies for internal reviews, drafting local laws, community consultation, Council briefings and implementation.

Beck Legal also regularly works with Councils in the enforcement of local laws including prosecutions and guiding councils on carrying out works and recovering costs pursuant to the Local Government Act 1989.
