After a comprehensive review, City of Moreton Bay has made 13 new local laws to better align with contemporary community needs, expectations and lifestyle. The laws were prepared in direct response to feedback from the community through Council’s Local Laws Review Project, a three-phase engagement program conducted between March 2021 and June 2023. The new laws will commence within the next month, with a notice being published in the Gazette and on Council’s website.
