Local Byelaws

Byelaws are laws which are made by a local authority and only apply within a specific geographical area. Byelaws are usually only created when there is no general legislation that deals with particular matters of concern to local people.

Byelaws must be ‘confirmed’ (approved) by a secretary of state for the government before they can come into force. Before applying for approval, councils have to advertise any proposed byelaws in the local press to give members of the public a chance to comment on them.

We have a large number of local byelaws for the Leeds area.
You can find out more about local byelaws from the central government department for communities and local government website by looking in the Documents section on this page.​
