Waikato district invited to give feedback on proposed changes to speed limits

Wanted - your feedback on proposed amendments to the Waikato District Council Speed Limit Bylaw 2011.

Council has received 16 proposed amendments to the current bylaw and will now undertake a 20-working day public consultation beginning Monday 24 February.

Detailed plans and maps showing the proposed changes to existing speed limits, and an online submission form, are available on Council’s website, www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz. Hard copy submission forms are also available at Council libraries and offices around the district.

Please note - submissions should only include feedback on the proposed amendments indicated on the index page and supporting maps. Residents wanting to request a speed limit review in other areas will have an opportunity to do so at a later date and the public will be advised at the appropriate stage.

All submissions must reach Council by 4pm on Friday 21 March and will be presented at April’s Policy and Regulatory committee hearing.
