It's called the Consolidated Bylaw because it's a series of bylaws (or chapters) designed to protect people from harm. The bylaws cover health, safety and environmental issues, as well as use of our water supplies and public space.
We've reviewed the Consolidated Bylaw and made some changes but before it is formally adopted, we'd like your feedback by way of a submission.
What is changing?
There are a number of minor changes and some of the bylaws are being revoked due to new legislation that has replaced the need for them.
The full consultation document has all the proposed changes. You can also read the individual bylaws, highlighting the proposed changes.
One of the significant changes we're proposing are speed limits on many of our roads. To see all the proposed changes, read the Bylaw 12 - Traffic Speed Limits (below). The maps can be found at the end of the bylaw and in the consultation document (below).
To give you an idea, below are some of the affected roads:
|Bathgate Road||Maytown Road||Bakers Road|
|Fitzmaurice Road||Molloys Road||Pembroke Street|
|Mount John Road||Painstown Road||Boyes Road|
|Garlands Road||Waihao Back Road||McNamaras Road|
These are just a few examples - check the maps for a full list.
Dog Control Policy
As well as reviewing our bylaws, we've also reviewed our Dog Control Policy. We want greater clarity around appropriate fencing as determined by the Animal Control Officer.
