Local Law Permits

Local laws are designed to provide peace, order and good governance to Benalla Rural City. They help to create a healthy environment in which the community can enjoy a quality of life that meets its expectations. Local laws ensure safe and equitable use and enjoyment of public spaces, the protection and enhancement of local amenities and the environment and fair and reasonable enjoyment of private land.

If local laws do not permit a required activity, you can apply for a Local Law Permit. Permits regulate certain activities to ensure they do not impact the safety of the public, create a nuisance or unduly affect the amenity of the area.
