What’s a bylaw?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Simply put, a bylaw is a rule made by a Council which affects the way we live, work and play in our district.

What’s a review of a bylaw?

All Councils across New Zealand have to review their bylaws every five to 10 years.

The purpose of a bylaw review is to ensure the regulations are appropriate to the issues it manages, in this case on parks and reserves. Sometimes a review does not require public consultation and at other times, the changes are such that they require public input to ensure it still meets the needs of the district or city that its written for.
