By-laws are local laws established by Councils to deal with issues specific to the relevant Council area.

The City of Marion currently has six by-laws, which apply only within the City of Marion's boundaries.

New by-laws were approved by Council and came into place as of 1 January 2015.

Shopping Trolley By-law

State Parliament voted to disallow Council’s Shopping Trolley Amenity By-Law on February 17, 2021.

Council had worked hard to introduce the by-law to reduce the hazards and unsightliness caused by abandoned shopping trolleys.

The Shopping Trolley Amenity By-Law came into effect on 2 November, 2020 – enforcement was scheduled to start on February 1, 2021. However, this was discontinued following the decision of parliament.
