Local Government Act 2009 
Proposal to Make  
Amendment Local Law No. 1 (Animal Management) 2017

Southern Downs Regional Council has proposed to make Amendment Local Law No. 1 (Animal Management) 2017 ('the proposed local law'). 

The purpose and general effect of the proposed local law are to amend Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2011 to allow the issuing of a ‘removal notice’ to the owner of an animal if that owner has failed to comply with a compliance notice.  A removal notice may require the owner to destroy the animal, or permanently remove the animal from a specified area.   It will be an offence to not comply with a removal notice.  If the owner fails to comply with a removal notice, an authorised person may seize the animal and dispose of the animal. 

Written submissions by any person in support of, or objecting to, the proposed local law are invited for a period commencing on 1 December 2017 and ending on 22 December 2017 (the 'consultation period') stating - 

(i)   the grounds of the submission;  and
(ii)   the facts and circumstances relied on in support of the grounds.

During the consultation period, the proposed local law will be available for inspection and purchase at Council's offices at 64 Fitzroy Street, Warwick, and 61 Marsh Street, Stanthorpe.  The proposed local law is also available for viewing on Council's website,   

Written submissions are to be made to Southern Downs Regional Council, PO Box 26, Warwick Qld 4370, or, before 5.00 pm, 22 December 2017.
