HAVE YOUR SAY: Trading in Public Places Bylaw Review

Consultation has concluded. Thank you for your feedback. Council will consider this as part of its decision-making process. We will be in touch to let you know the decisions that are made.

The purpose of this bylaw is to regulate traders like coffee carts, fruit and vegetable vans and other stalls.

Trading in Public public places can bring a sense of vibrancy and life to an area, enhance residents and visitor experience and enable commercial opportunities. Conversely, if trading is not sufficiently regulated, it can lead to a number of negative outcomes, such as, posing a safety risk to road users, causing undue noise and litter, and impacting the local area.

The review of the Trading in Public Places Bylaw aims to ensure that Council has got the balance right.


Feedback closes 4pm, Thursday 18 April 2019


KEY CHANGES PROPOSED IN DRAFT BYLAW:

  • Remove the prohibition on trading in public places for Jellicoe Street, Te Puke and SH2/Main Street, Katikati and instead apply the standard application process as used for all other trading in public places sites.
  • Remove the requirement that trading in public places will only be considered in areas with a 50km/h speed limit and replace this with a requirement for sites to be assessed and approved by an authorised person from Council's roading team or NZTA.
  • The inclusion of consideration for the impact on neighbours and potential benefits to the areas.
  • Several other minor changes are included in the draft bylaw, including consideration of prior performance, Council flexibility for events, and reference to industry standards.
