Consultation on amendments to the public safety bylaw

Reason for the Proposal

Under legislation Council must use the special consultative procedure to review the Wairoa District Council Consolidated Bylaw Part 3 – Public Safety. The proposed amendments include updating some outdated references to legislation, changes to better address issues that fall under the purpose of this bylaw, and to introduce clarity on the consequences of breaches under this bylaw.

Council is considering whether it should adopt amendments to the Wairoa District Council Consolidated Bylaw Part 3 – Public Safety. It considers that this is a matter for local communities to provide feedback, there is also a legislative requirement for the special consultative procedure to be used. Council is therefore seeking feedback from its communities on whether they believe Council should adopt these proposed amendments to the bylaw.
