CATS LOCAL LAW 2018
The Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes has resolved to make a Cats Local Law. The purpose of the proposed Local Law is to repeal the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes Keeping and Welfare of Cats Local Law and to provide Council under the proposed Cats Local Law 2018 with measures in addition to those under the Cat Act 2011 to control the keeping of cats. The effect of the proposed Local Law is to control the number of cats that can be kept, the places where cats can be kept and to control the activity of cats where a nuisance is caused.
A copy of the proposed Local Law may be inspected at, or obtained from the Shire’s Library (75 Steere Street, Bridgetown) during normal opening hours Monday to Saturday. The draft Local Law is also available here. Written submissions about the proposed Local Law will be accepted up to the close of business on Thursday, 24 May 2018.
