Council bylaws

The London Borough of Barnet, like other councils, has wide powers to make bylaws in relation to a range of areas under its control. Generally, bylaws seek to  uphold good order, government and public health.

Bylaws created by the council must be sealed and then confirmed by a higher power as valid before they are enforceable. After this, bylaws are given the weight of law and are generally enforceable by the council. Persons who contravene an enforceable bylaw may be subject to a penalty or a fine.
