Current Local Laws

Local Governments in Western Australia have the power to create specific laws that address local issues or concerns. These Local Laws address a wide range of issues and activities such as how the Council will conduct its meetings, how many cats or dogs may be kept on a property, and car parking, to name a few. Local Laws are enforceable through the courts and often carry infringement notices so it is very important that you seek advice from our helpful staff if you have a question on what a Local Law might mean to you. You may contact the Town of Port Hedland on: 08 9158 9300.
