More than 910 submissions received on brothel bylaw

Auckland City has received more than 910 submissions on its draft bylaw to control the location, signage and licensing of brothels and the location and signage of commercial sex premises.

Deputy mayor David Hay says he is delighted with the public’s overwhelming response to the council’s request for feedback on this issue.

“There is obviously a high level of community concern about the location and promotion of commercial sex premises and brothels in the city. We will do our best to ensure the opinions of our communities are heard.”

Submissions to the draft brothel and commercial sex premises bylaw closed yesterday.

The hearings will be held in the week beginning 24 November 2003. All submitters will be sent a notification letter advising the details of the hearing. The hearing is open to the public so anyone can attend. Only those who made a submission can speak at the hearing.

The final decisions on the bylaw will be made at a full council meeting on 18 December 2003.

The draft bylaw restricts the location of brothels in Auckland city to certain areas of the central business district (CBD) and a handful of industrial areas. Commercial sex premises are banned from areas within 250 metres of an education facility or major public interchange.
