New Zealand : Communities to have say on bylaws.

General Manager Strategic Planning and Policy, Darrell Sargent, says a combination of historic changes to legislation and staff movements have led to the Council having an incomplete list of bylaws and their review dates. Mr Sargent says work being done on the Dog Management Bylaw highlighted some concerns around the Reserves Bylaw and this led the administration to locate and investigate the content and status of the full set of bylaws the Council has.

We recently obtained a legal opinion which has clarified these provisions and a legal commentary we have relied on to determine when bylaw reviews fall due, and we now have processes in place to ensure all future bylaws will be reviewed on time.

The Council will develop and seek public feedback on the bylaws during June and July of this year. At this stage, we are not proposing significant changes to the draft bylaws we seek public feedback on. However, that doesnt mean we wont change the bylaws after considering submissions from the community. We encourage people with an interest in these bylaws to have their say during the consultation period.
