Waikato District Council is seeking feedback on the following proposed Bylaws:

Proposed Reserves and Beaches Bylaw

The key changes to the proposed Reserves and Beaches Bylaw are:

  • Introduction to a consistent approach with neighbouring Auckland Council in dealing with vehicles on beaches throughout the District.

Proposed Cemeteries Bylaw

The key changes to the proposed Cemeteries Bylaw are:

  • Combining both the previous Franklin District Council Cemeteries Bylaw 2008 and Waikato District Council Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw 2008
  • Only Monumental Masons to undertake monument works in all cemeteries
  • Clarifying the number of plots that can be pre-purchased.
