Council was informed by the LRC (Legislative Review Committee) that some of the content of the amended By-Laws duplicated existing State Govt. legislation.
The LRC is required to consider all sub-ordinate legislation (regulations, rules and by-laws). The Committee comprises six State Govt. members, three from the House of Assembly and three from the Legislative Council.
In line with the feedback received from the LRC, Council introduced By-law 13 which replicates By-Law 12 but with the duplicated content removed. As required, Council had to undertake another round of consultation.
At the conclusion of the consultation, there was only one submission received which agreed with Council's approach. Council then endorsed By-law 13 for adoption. By-law 13 will be formally adopted once the LRC provides their final approval.
