  • local law diagramThe purpose of Local law and policy matters for consideration is to highlight opportunities for local government to use local law and policy to regulate and influence environments that support physical activity and healthy eating.

    Many of the objectives for healthy people and places can be achieved through measures other than local laws. However, local laws are still used by some councils to regulate food provision.

    It is recommended that council review existing local laws to ensure they have not unintentionally been preventing the provision of healthy food in their community.
