Why have local laws?
Under the Local Government Act, Local Governments are able to create local laws they consider to be necessary to perform any of their functions. These local laws created by the City of Kwinana do not apply outside of the district.
If a situation or problem emerges in a local government area that is causing a nuisance that cannot be controlled under the Local Government Act or State or Federal Legislation, consideration of making a law to control the situation may be deemed necessary.
Before the City can create a local law, a clearly established need for the law must be identified.
