Bylaw Renewals

Napier City Council is seeking to renew a number of bylaws.

These bylaws are important to the safe and efficient running of our city and are necessary to support a number of regulatory functions the Council provides. We think these bylaws are currently operating well and we are only proposing a few minor changes.

 The bylaws that we are seeking to renew are:

  • Introductory Bylaw 2014
  • Animal Control Bylaw 2014
  • Cemeteries Bylaw 2014
  • Fire Control Bylaw 2014
  • Parking Control Bylaw 2014
  • Parks and Reserves Bylaw 2014
  • Public Places Bylaw 2014
  • Public Places Liquor Control Bylaw 2014
  • Tattooists and Skin Piercers Bylaw 2014
  • Trading in Public Places Bylaw 2014

The amendments made in the proposed bylaws are minor and do not change their substance or meaning. Minor amendments have been necessary to reflect legislative change or shifting responsibilities.

While we think these bylaws remain the most appropriate way of addressing the issues they cover and are functioning well, we welcome your suggestions for any improvements and encourage you to have your say. If you think these bylaws should be reviewed earlier than every five years, please let us know.

Closing date for submissions is 12 noon, 10 December 2021.

Do you want to hear from us more often and have your say on other Napier projects?
