New public nuisance powers begin in qld court
The Western Australian Supreme Court is to decide on July 2 whether the State Government’s proposed new public nuisance powers will be enacted by law.
Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie is seeking to introduce a new public nuisance clause into the Local Government Act, which would allow the State Government to impose legal consequences on councils for not controlling or removing public nuisance.
If it passes it would not only allow the State 바카라사이트Government to enforce existing rights, but also to impose new protections for public order, including the power to „seize and destroy” or prohibit conduct if people are not acting in good faith and the authority to require them to do so.

Mr Bleijie says the bill is intended to protect residents, not councils.
Councils can be found under the Local Government Act, but are often not the only bodies making decisions.
For example, a police force in a particular part of the state may make decisions about police and fire service services and also what public housing and housing associations operate on their behalf.
The bill says councils should always be „appropriately able to take all rea우리카지노sonable steps to exercise these functions of public authority”.
But the legislation can also apply to the State Government, which would be in a „unique” position, according to Mr Bleijie.
In the case of the Government, the court could require them to „confer” the powers of the State Government.
For example, in the current situation, the judge may find that there is a „serious public nuisance arising” in a cit
