Review of the Impounding Act 1993
What's this about?
The Impounding Act 1993 is designed to protect safety and amenity in public spaces. It enables councils and other public land managers to deal with the negative impacts of abandoned items and stray animals.
This captures the impact of items such as shopping trolleys, boat trailers, share bikes, abandoned cars, e-scooters and wandering stock. The legislation aims to help balance the convenience of using new technologies with preserving amenity for different groups of people wanting to use and enjoy public spaces.
This is an opportunity for the community to help identify how best to regulate these matters given emerging technologies and the ever-changing use of public spaces in NSW.
Feedback on the discussion paper will inform the next stages of the legislation review process into 2020.
