The following documents are currently on public exhibition and submissions are invited:



Wangaratta Rural City Council intends to make a revised Local Law (replacing existing Local Law No 1 Community Amenity and Local Law No 3 Murray to Mountains Rail Trail).

The proposed revised Local Law No 1 of 2017 Community Amenity intends to:

  • Consolidate the continuing provisions of the existing Local Law No 1 and Local Law No 3, and will update and simplify the language and reorganise the structure of the local law document to current best standards;
  • Be consistent with similar local law provisions of other municipalities;
  • Cover some gaps to allow response to concerns of the public over amenity issues;
  • Review a limited number of infringement penalties; and
  • Be more comprehensive and reduce reliance on Local Law Policies for its implementation.

A Community Impact Statement has been prepared to inform the community about the proposed Local Law and to assist any member of the public who may wish to make a submission to Council.

Copies of the proposed Local Law and the Community Impact Statement can be obtained from the Wangaratta Government Centre and on Council’s website at
