Creating Te Puke's Safe School Zone

Consultation has concluded. Thank you for your interest!

Te Puke residents are being asked whether they support the introduction of a temporary 40km/h speed restriction on roads surrounding a number of local schools.

Western Bay of Plenty District Council is proposing to create a ‘school zone’ around Te Puke Primary, Te Puke High School and Fairhaven School in a bid to increase student safety.

A key aspect of the proposal is the creation of a 40km/h speed restriction for 30 minutes each morning and afternoon while students arrive at and leave school.

You can view the proposed school zone and speed restriction sites in the FAQs or Report.
