Noosa Shire Council

Local laws in Noosa Local laws in Noosa

On 7 May 2015, Noosa Shire Council adopted a new suite of local laws. These new laws incorporate the State Government’s model local laws and a number of subordinate local laws which provide more detailed provisions specifically tailored for the Noosa Shire.

The new Noosa local laws came into effect on 1 July 2015.

Local laws help to regulate a range of activities to ensure the good governance, health and safety of communities in the shire and address issues such as:

  • parking
  • keeping animals
  • approvals for activities
  • neighbourhood nuisances (e.g. noise, illegal dumping, graffiti)
  • bathing reserves
  • dog off-leash areas
  • abandoned vehicles.
