It is proposed that Local Law No. 1 (Administration) 2019 and Subordinate Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2019 are amended to define an urban area, increase the minimum lot size for keeping stock (this does not include poultry or swine), require a permit to keep stock on a lot between 4000m² and 20,000m², and prohibit three or more dogs being kept on lots under 4000m².

Public consultation on this and other proposed changes to TRC’s Local Laws is open for submissions until 4pm Friday 20 October 2023. 

Adopted changes would become the Amending Local Law No. 1 (Miscellaneous) 2023.

Submissions must be received no later than 4pm Friday 20 October and may be lodged via a survey form available on the TRC website, email, delivery to a TRC customer service centre or post to PO Box 573, Atherton 4883.
