We are conducting a minor review of Stonnington's General Local Law.

The existing law is not due to expire until July 2028, however we have identified a number of enhancements that if introduced, will help us work more effectively, efficiently and transparently.

The proposed enhancements include:

  • aligning the Local Law with new requirements of the Local Government Act 2020
  • introducing a new permit appeals process to provide continuous improvement and greater transparency
  • reviewing our Footpath Trading Policy

There are approximately 20 proposed changes and we are keen to hear your thoughts. Read about the changes below and have your say on the survey linked here before 7 May 2023.
