Local Laws

We have a set of local laws and policies which operate to protect the amenity of Corangamite Shire and the safety of all those who come to be in it. These rules cover many aspects of daily life — from practical safety issues to more aesthetic considerations.

We encourage all members of the community to take responsibility for maintaining the Shire as a safe and pleasant place to be by having regard for each other and by complying with the local laws.

Permits must be obtained from the Shire to ensure certain fundraising events, business activities, farming enterprises and fire management procedures are conducted in a manner that ensures that the public safety and amenity of the community is protected.

You can apply on-line for the following permits:
