Methamphetamine Property Policy

The risk of illness occurring as a result of residing in a property contaminated with methamphetamine residue has been considered by Council.  Council has prepared a draft Methamphetamine Property Policy addresses steps which will be taken if Council is informed that a property is contaminated with methamphetamine.  The draft policy addresses Councils obligations under the:

  • Health Act 1956 with respect to the management of conditions that may be injurious to health; and
  • Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 to record certain information in a land information memorandum.

The draft policy sets out how the Council will satisfy those obligations with respect to properties contaminated with methamphetamine residue.

Health and Hygiene Bylaw

The risk of infection and transmission of disease occurring as a result of skin piercing has been considered by Council. The draft Health and Hygiene Bylaw addresses steps which council can put in place which may assist in mitigating this risk.  The Bylaw helps Council meet its obligations to take action under the Health Act 1956 with respect to the management of conditions that may be injurious to health. A number of councils already have a bylaw to address this issue and a draft for consideration has been prepared following liaison with relevant operators in the local industry.
