Change to our Bylaws

Wharves and Boat Ramps Bylaw 2019 and Food Grading Bylaw 2019

After inviting and considering feedback from the public, we have adopted our Wharves and Boat Ramps Bylaw 2019 and our Food Grading Bylaw 2019 at an extraordinary Council meeting on Wednesday, 22 May 2019. These bylaws were reviewed under section 156 of the Local Government Act 2002 and will be effective 1 July 2019.

Revocation of Franklin District Council Bylaws

After inviting feedback from the public, we have now revoked the Franklin District Council Brothel Bylaw 2010, the Franklin District Council Trading in Public Places Bylaw 2008 and the Franklin District Council Cemeteries Bylaw 2008 at an extraordinary Council meeting on Wednesday, 22 May 2019. These bylaws will cease to be in effect on 1 July 2019.

Separation of our other bylaws

We’ve made some minor administrative changes and corrections to Part 3: Public Safety of our consolidated bylaw. This included splitting Part 3: Public Safety into standalone bylaws to make them easier to use, and affects the following bylaws which have not been reviewed: Dog Control Bylaw 2016, Freedom Camping Bylaw 2013, and the Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw 2017. The changes made are minor and do not affect an existing right, interest, title, immunity or duty, or an existing status or capacity of anyone to whom the bylaw applies.

Copies of our bylaws are available to view on our website and at our Council offices.
