We would like to hear your views on the proposed Public Places Bylaw. This bylaw enables Council to guide the way our public places are used and protect the community from activities that are a nuisance.

Proposed changes to the bylaw are:

  • Updating the current provisions which cover electoral signage to cover all types of signage (Clause 20);
  • Implementing a district wide approach to the riding of wheeled recreational devices (like skateboards and scooters) on footpaths in specified sections of town centres (clause 11);
  • Implementing district wide restrictions for riding of horses on footpaths in town centres (Clause 8);
  • Removal of clauses that are covered in the Keeping of Animals Bylaw 2015 (clause 23 of the Public Places Bylaw 2016).
