Proposed Cat Amendment Local Law 2018: Notice under section 3.12(3) Local Government Act 1995

18-06 Proposed Cat Amendment Local Law 2018

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder proposes to make the Cat Amendment Local Law 2018.

The purpose of this local law is to amend the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Cat Local Law 2016 (Principal Local Law).

The effect of this local law is to amend clause 2.3(3) of the Principal Local Law (refer to the Cat Amendment Local Law 2017) by deleting the words “or until the local government withdraws the notice” and replacing them with the words “which shall not exceed 28 days”.

What does this actually mean?

  • The Law currently says: "When a nuisance has occurred and a notice to abate the nuisance is given, the notice remains in force for the period specified by the local government on the notice or until the local government withdraws the notice."
  • The City is proposing to amend the law to say: "When a nuisance has occurred and a notice to abate the nuisance is given, the notice remains in force for the period specified by the local government on the notice which shall not exceed 28 days."
  • By amending the wording of the law, the intention is that a notice issued will not exceed 28 days.
