Council by-laws

  • Council and democracy

The London Borough of Barnet, like other councils, has wide powers to make by-laws in relation to a range of areas under its control. Generally, by-laws seek to ensure the upholding of good order, government and public health.

By-laws created by the council must be sealed and then confirmed by a higher power as valid before they are enforceable.

Thereafter, by-laws are given the weight of law and generally enforceable by the council. Persons who contravene an enforceable by-law may be subject to a penalty or a fine.
