Laws & Rules

No Smoking Playground

Monash has four local laws which are in place to protect the amenity of Monash and the safety of all those who come to be in it. These local laws cover many aspects of daily life such as keeping footpaths and walkways clear of vegetation, sharing the available parking fairly, reducing risks and ensuring the proper procedures are followed in Council meetings and elections.

We encourage the community to be responsible for keeping Monash a safe and enjoyable place to live and work by complying with our local laws.
