Waikato District Council adopted both the Traffic Bylaw 2023 and the Public Places Bylaw 2023 on 26 April 2023, following public consultation from 26 February – 26 March 2023.
The Public Places Bylaw enables Council to guide the way our public places are used and protect the community from activities that are a nuisance.
The Traffic Bylaw enables Council to put measures in place to protect the public from nuisance and protect, promote, and maintain public health and safety. This is done through setting requirements for parking, establishing standards for activities within the road reserve and general control of vehicular or other traffic.
