The Shire of Augusta Margaret River proposes to make amendments to the Erosion and Sediment Control Local Law 2019.

The purpose of the proposed amendments to the local law will enable a reasonableness requirement in the power to issue notices under clause 2.2.

The effect of the proposed amendments to the local law is that landowners, builders, developers and trades working subject to the provisions of the local law will not be subject to notices ‘to make good any damage’ under clause 2.2 if they have taken all steps reasonably practical to prevent soil erosion.

A copy of the proposed amendments to the local law may be inspected at or obtained from the Shire’s Offices 41 Wallcliffe Road, Margaret River between the hours of 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday and at any public library within the Shire of Augusta Margaret River during normal opening hours.  Also available by clicking on the link below:
