Rules on election signage to be updated

Auckland Transport media release

2 May 2014


Rules on election signage to be updated

Auckland Transport is proposing changes to its Election Signs bylaw. Changes have been based on feedback and the practical experience of the October 2013 local elections. These changes will provide greater clarity and certainty for candidates, political parties and the public.

Public submissions on the changes open today (2 May) and close on 3 June 2014. It is expected that any final changes to the bylaw will be adopted by the end of June, and will be in place in time for the general election on Saturday 20 September 2014.

The proposed changes include:

• the addition of explanatory notes;
• allowing temporary closure of public sites that are temporarily unsuitable;
• limiting the period that signs on private property can be displayed;
• providing a minimum size of signs and their position within approved public sites;
• allowing candidates to appear on individual and team signs on the same approved public site;
• limiting the number of signs promoting election and referenda issues consistent with signage for candidates, teams and parties;
• providing that the contact details of the person responsible for the sign are legible;
• minor changes to the bylaw to simplify provisions and update statutory references.
Auckland Transport will be contacting registered political parties to let them know that new rules may be adopted for election signage in the Auckland region.
Notes:
A copy of the proposed bylaw amendments may be seen on the Auckland Transport website www.at.govt.nz/about-us/bylaws

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
