Welcome to the Shire of Corrigin

Local Laws

Local laws are designed to protect the community and local environment from health and safety concerns, and make living in the Shire of Corrigin pleasant for all residents.  Local laws help you understand your rights and responsibilities, and promote understanding and cooperation.  Prior to 1995, local laws were referred to as ‘by-laws’ and all local governments in Western Australia have local laws which in the case of the Shire of Corrigin, are administered by Shire officers.


Our local laws may be different from the local laws in other municipalities. Local laws are dynamic and as such, changes made in legislation may lead to current or new local laws being reviewed by Council at any time.  There is always a statewide public notice period given when these reviews are undertaken.
