Update from Auckland Council, 15th April 2019:
Thank you for providing feedback on proposed changes to the Public Safety and Nuisance Bylaw 2013 between October and December last year.
After considering feedback from 1865 people, council decided on 28 March 2019 to adopt the proposed changes with minor amendments. Changes will apply from 1 October 2019, including:
- to use central government legislation instead of a bylaw to address damage, car window washing, mind altering substances, graffiti, noise, fish offal, gates in parks, fireworks on non-public places, street names and property numbering
- to move issues about animals, signage, stormwater and traffic to existing, dedicated bylaw
- to prohibit leaving construction materials, boats, shipping containers and consumer goods not on display for sale in public places, unless approved by council
- to clarify the expected behaviours and restrictions on the use of public places
- to clarify how council makes controls and gives approvals
- to clarify which public places the Bylaw applies to and enabling people in control of those public places to approve exemptions to replace legacy bylaws about fences with changes to the Public Safety and Nuisance Bylaw 2013.
