noting the difference between legislation and enforcement

I think we also should be quite forceful in noting the difference between legislation and enforcement.
All Statutes contain a penalty provision, usually in the form of “Penalty Units” (currently $126.15 per unit in QLD) however there is no requirement under Statute for the penalty to be applied… it is discretionary and it is a requirement for the enforcement agency (Council in this case) to factor individual and case specific circumstances.
