Every seven years Council must consider and adopt new By-laws which includes a long and comprehensive consultative process.
A review of the 2010 By-laws was conducted and at the 14 February 2017 Council meeting, Council resolved to seek public comment on the draft By-laws.
At the 13 June 2017 Council meeting, Council adopted the new By-Laws and authorised the Chief Executive Officer to undertake all steps to finalise the review process and give effect to the newly adopted By-Laws.
On 4 July 2017, the By-Laws were published in the Government Gazette, and came into operation on 4 November 2017.
