    ·  Clarification of clauses relating to permit zones.  Please note there are no changes to the permit zones.

    ·  Provisions that are now handled under State legislation have been removed to avoid replication.  For example, all provisions are now covered under the Local Government (Parking for People with Disabilities) Regulations 2014.

    ·  Ability to have solid yellow lines on the road surface against the kerb to indicate no parking areas, as well as notification signs indicating this.

    ·  Updating some definitions, such as ‘caravan’ and ‘shared zone’, to refer to relevant State legislation and/or codes.

    The key difference between the proposed Dogs Local Law and the previous Dogs Local Law 2001 (found here if you would like to read and compare the two versions) is that the revised Local Law is greatly simplified.  This is because much of the previous Dogs Local Law is provided for under the Dog Act 1976.  No additional rights are granted under the review, and none are taken away.
