Western Bay have your say image

Have your say has closed on the Draft Reserves and Facilities Bylaw 2018. Feedback opened on Monday 14 May and closed on Monday 9 July 2018 at 4pm:

  • The Have Your Say website had approximately 2300 visits over the last 7 weeks and we received 571 submissions through the website, email, open days and dropped into Council’s service centres.
  • More than 70 people indicated that they would like to speak to their submission at the hearings, which will be held on the afternoon of 6 August in Katikati. This is a change from the original date of 19 July. We will be contacting submitters to arrange times over the next couple of days.
  • The submissions will be analysed over the coming month for Council to consider in its decision-making process.
  • Council would like to thank all those that took the time to provide feedback throughout the consultation period.


Background

Western Bay of Plenty District Council is amending its Reserves and Facilities Bylaw 2012 and is seeking your views on the proposed changes.

Following this review, Council will revoke its Reserves and Facilities Bylaw 2012 and replace this with the Western Bay of Plenty District Council Reserves and Facilities Bylaw 2018.

The purpose of the bylaw is to provide for the orderly management and control of Council reserves and facilities for the benefit and enjoyment of all users of these areas. This helps us to:

  • protect the public from nuisance,

  • protect, promote, and maintain public health and safety, and

  • minimise the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.


Tuapiro Point

A change is proposed to the provisions that currently allow horses on Tuapiro Point. The bylaw identifies where horses can go and requires the removal of horse waste to protect significant cultural and ecological values at Tuapiro Point.

The review also provides an opportunity to incorporate Council direction from 2015 on the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (including drones) on Council owned land.


Have your say

You are invited to make written comments, suggestions or objections to the draft bylaw which should include your name and address and whether you wish to speak in support of your feedback.

Please read the Statement of Proposal.

Feedback opens on Monday 14 May and closes on Monday 9 July.
