Bylaws are local legislation, enforceable by either Council staff or other nominated agencies.
In most cases, Council makes bylaws under the Local Government Act 2002 and they are generally made for one or more of the following purposes:
- protecting the public from nuisance
- protecting, promoting, and maintaining public health and safety
- minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.
Our bylaws cover a wide range of Council functions.
When making, amending or revoking a bylaw, we consult with the public before making a decision.
Review of Speed Limit Bylaw Consultation
As part of the Governments' Safer Journeys Strategy, we are required to review speed limits in the Whangarei District.
We are doing this in a staged process, focussing on areas where the evidence indicates that changing the speed limit will have the greatest impact on reducing fatal and serious harm crashes and improving overall road safety.
The first areas being reviewed are:
- Vinegar Hill Road
- Waipu and Nova Scotia Road
- Ruakaka and One Tree Point
Consultation period was from 4 November to 9 December 2019.
