Consultation on the proposed Livestock Movement Bylaw 2022 is now closed. A hearing is planned to be held in March 2022.


The proposed Bylaw sets out rules to move livestock safely on roads. It also identifies where livestock movement is allowed, prohibited or requires a Council permit, based on the safety profile of the road.

It sets out Council's livestock movement or crossing permit requirements, and notes how costs will be shared for stock underpasses.

To identify if livestock movement is allowed on your roads, or requires a Council permit, please refer to the table of road classifications and Appendix 3 in the proposed Bylaw. An interactive map is also available. To see what classification your road fits into, click on 'basemap' and 'carriageway'.

For more detail, please refer to the Statement of Proposal, proposed Bylaw, and Submission Form. For any queries, please contact us on
