Local Government and Regulatory update: Increase in the value of penalty units

May, 2016

On 29 April 2016 the State Government notified amendments to the Penalties and Sentences Regulation 2015.

In particular, the value of a penalty unit for most offences under state legislation and local laws will increase to from $117.80 to $121.90 effective from 1 July 2016.

Local Governments and other regulatory bodies will need to ensure their statutory notices and penalty infringement notices are amended accordingly.
