Councils in South Australia are able to establish by-laws, under the Local Government Act, 1999.  By-laws are local laws established by Councils to deal with issues specific to the relevant Council area.

The City of Holdfast Bay currently has seven by-laws, which apply only within the City of Holdfast Bay's boundaries.  These came into effect on 14 February 2012. These seven by-laws cover a wide and diverse range of topical issues to the City of Holdfast Bay.

What is a By-law?

By-laws are used to manage, control and regulate activities within the boundaries of the City.

By-laws are supplementary to existing legislation, and are made subject to an Act of Parliament or Regulations made hereunder.  Council may limit the area or time that a By-law is active.
