Therefore the intent is that the revised By-laws will become operable on 1 January 2022.
The following proposed By-laws are now available for public consultation:

A mandatory By-law review process has been initiated in accordance with Section 251 of the Local Government Act 1999, to ensure that the City of Charles Sturt has new By-laws in place when the current ones expire at the conclusion of the 2021 calendar year. The legislative requirements for making By-laws prescribe several steps, including this important public consultation process.
Proposed Draft By-laws 2021
The draft By-laws remain largely unchanged from the current suite of By-laws. Some minor amendments have been made to reflect feedback received from our community during the operation of the current By-laws and to enhance their clarity and ease of application. Additionally, minor amendments have also been made to reflect best practice and consistency across the State.
