Bylaws are local legislation enforceable by the Council, and other nominated agencies such as the Police, that have been developed by the Council in consultation with the community. 

The Hauraki District Council bylaws intend to provide laws applicable only to Hauraki District that in general protect the public from nuisance; protect, promote and maintain public health and safety; and minimize the potential for offensive behaviour in public places.
