Urban Beekeeping – Code of Practice

The Code of Practice for Urban Beekeeping in Southern Tasmania was published in March 2014, and in June 2014 minor amendments were made: S_Tas Code Of Practice_Ver2

In November 2014, this Code of Practice was amended to cover the whole of Tasmania, issued by the T.B.A., and sent by them to all 29 councils in the state.

In January 2015, the Hobart City Council approved a proposed initiative to replace its current by-law relating to beekeeping with one which gives effect to the provisions of the T.B.A. Code of Practice.  The S.B.A. will now work with H.C.C. officers to draft the new by-law.
