Local Law No. 5 is a Maroondah Council by-law which relates to public safety and amenity. The local law which came into effect in January 2000 aims to protect Maroondah’s amenity through reducing harm to public safety, public health and the environment.
Issues covered within the local law include graffiti, trees and vegetation and animal management (including the number of animals allowed within a household). The materials that are allowed within the general garbage collection and within the recycling bins is also covered within this local law.
Local Law No. 5 – Public Safety and Amenity was designed to ensure that the community is aware of risks to Maroondah’s environment and public health and is therefore worth reading by any Maroondah resident or ratepayer.
