Two days left to comment on Council’s Brothels Bylaw
The public has until 5pm this Friday 16 April to comment on the Christchurch City Council’s proposed Brothels (Location and Signage) Bylaw.
The bylaw’s objectives are to limit the location of brothels to specified parts of the central city and to control signage advertising commercial sexual services.
Since the first week of March, a summary of information, the Council's statement of proposal and the bylaw have been available to view at Civic Offices, Tuam St, ground floor reception; Council Service Centres; Christchurch City Libraries and on the website http://www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay. Submissions may be made on the bylaw through the Have Your Say website or by writing to The Council Secretary, Christchurch City Council P.O.Box 237, Christchurch. Submitters may also request to have their comments heard in person by the Council's Prostitution Reform Act Subcommittee.
Council’s proposed Brothels (Location and Signage) Bylaw was
developed after extensive consultation on prostitution
issues with the public and stakeholders. When the latest
period of consultation has ended, the Council will consider
all of the verbal and written submissions before finalising
the Brothels (location and Signage) Bylaw.
