The NSW Government is keeping our public spaces safe, accessible and enjoyable for our community now and into the future.

The new Public Spaces Unattended Property laws commence on 1 November 2022.

The new laws include harsher penalties for owners of shopping trolleys, unregistered cars and trailers, and stray stock animals.
These laws mark the biggest change to impounding laws in nearly 30 years.

The commencement of the new Act will be supported by sensible regulations, guidelines, fact sheets and other information for industry, councils and the community.

It’s important to note that there is a six month grace period before fines can be issued for certain unattended property such as shopping trolleys.
