Brisbane City Council’s Health, Safety and Amenity Local Law 2009 regulates activities which affect the liveability of our suburbs and work places.
Health and safety
Council places importance on values such as keeping Brisbane's air clean, our natural environment safe, and controlling waste for our community. Under the law, Council manages:
