Local laws ensure that activities throughout the City are regulated, controlled and efficiently managed.

Under the Local Government Act 1995 , the City of Albany Council is able to make local laws considered necessary for the good government of the district. A local law is invalid to the extent that it is inconsistent with any state or federal legislation. Local laws that are being advertised for public comment can be viewed on the community engagement page.
