Local Authorities were empowered to make byelaws or regulations under various statutes and covering a number of subjects. These byelaws or regulations had to be submitted to the Local Government Board and its successors to be confirmed and approved before becoming operative. The sealed copy was returned to the authority concerned and a copy retained in the Department to provide a comprehensive record.
The Annual Reports of the Local Government Board contain lists of Byelaws approved, the names of the local authorities concerned and the subject matter.
