District Bylaw Review 2015 - Stage 2

What is a Bylaw?

Bylaws are rules made by Council under the Local Government Act 2002. They are created for the purpose of:

  • protecting the public from nuisance
  • protecting, promoting, and maintaining public health and safety and
  • minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public places

Why are the Bylaws being reviewed?

The Act requires a bylaw is reviewed within five years of it being made. It is automatically revoked two years after the last date on which the bylaw should have been reviewed.
