Draft Local Nuisance & Litter Control Regulations Consultation
Draft regulations under the Act were released for consultation on 14 October, 2016. The regulations provide further detail and requirements for the proper administration of the Act.
They have been developed with the assistance of a local government reference group consisting of representatives from City of Salisbury, City of Adelaide, City of West Torrens, Light Regional Council, Port Adelaide Enfield Council, the Local Government Association of South Australia, and KESAB. There are two sets of draft regulations that your feedback is sought on. They are set out as follows:
– Local Nuisance and Litter Control (Amendment of Act, Schedule 1) Regulations 2016 – these regulations will amend Schedule 1 of the Act and will serve no further role in administration of the legislation once the changes are affected. The regulations include declarations of what does and does not constitute local nuisance and includes a declaration of what is to constitute unsightly conditions of premises. – Local Nuisance and Litter Control Regulations 2016 – these are the primary regulations that will support the administration of the Act. These regulations include advisory information on the content for council annual reports and notifications to the EPA regarding matters of material and serious environmental harm. The regulations also provide for the management of fees and the form of citizen notifications under the Act.
