The objectives of this local law are:

  • balance effective farmland usage and residential compatibility in a social environment free from hazards to health in which the residents of the municipal district can enjoy a quality of life that meets the general expectations of the community;
  • protect and promote amenity within the municipal district;
  • provide regulation for the use of scareguns within the municipal district in a manner that prevents their use being detrimental to the environment or to the quality of life of persons residing in the municipal district;
  • provide a fair balance between the need of local producers to protect their crops with the responsible use of scareguns, and protecting the rights of residents from exposure to excessive noise.
We acknowledge the people past and present of the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Djab Wurrung tribes, whose land forms the Pyrenees Shire. We pay our respect to the customs, traditions and stewardship of the land by the elders and people of these tribes.
