Byelaws

A byelaw is a "rule made by a local authority to regulate its own affairs".

The power and procedure to make byelaws is provided by government legislation and all byelaws must be confirmed (approved) by the Secretary of State of the relevant government department unless statute specifies otherwise.

Breaching a byelaw is a criminal offence and an offender may be prosecuted in the Magistrates' Court or in some instances, as an alternative to prosecution, issued with a fixed penalty notice.
