Woollahra Council invites your feedback on the Draft Woollahra Enforcement Policy 2022.

The Draft Policy will assist Council Officers to act promptly, consistently and effectively in response to allegations of unlawful activity.

This Draft Policy applies to regulatory issues including investigation and enforcement of matters within Council’s area of responsibility including, but not limited to:

  • development and building control
  • environmental heritage and heritage conservation
  • tree preservation
  • fire safety
  • public health and safety
  • pollution control
  • animal control
  • food safety
  • environmental health
  • regulation of public spaces (including impounding of unattended property)
  • regulation of parking.

The Draft Policy provides a framework to assist Council in making decisions in its enforcement functions. It establishes clear guidelines for the exercise of the discretion the Council must use in dealing with unlawful activity, taking into account all relevant information including the available evidence, cost to the community, the circumstances of the individual case and public policy and precedent considerations.

This Draft Policy has been approved by Council to be placed on public exhibition. If adopted it will replace the existing Enforcement Policy which was originally adopted by Council in 2007.
