Council opens consultation on five bylaws

Council opens consultation on five bylaws

The Council has opened consultation on proposed changes to five bylaws. The five proposed bylaws are:

Cruising and Prohibited Times on Roads Bylaw 2014

The proposal intends to extend from 60 minutes to four hours, the period within which ‘cruising’ drivers cannot repeatedly travel along the same section of a road. This would prevent ‘cruising’ on the same section of road between 10pm and 5am.

Parks and Reserves Bylaw 2014

The proposed bylaw includes new controls on activities that might affect a reserve or other users of a reserve, and more detailed provisions for sporting and other organised events. Activities that are permitted by a management plan or resource consent are exempt from the bylaw.

Traffic and Parking Amendment Bylaw 2014

This amendment would provide for shared paths and spaces, where pedestrians and cyclists share the same space.

Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2014

The proposal would see controls on fireworks introduced for the first time, as well as new exemptions for a range of cooking appliances such as pizza ovens.

Water Supply, Wastewater and Stormwater Bylaw 2014

This proposal would require new homes and commercial buildings in some parts of Banks Peninsula to install rain water storage to be used for toilets, gardens and emergencies. In addition, all city and Banks Peninsula connections to the Council’s stormwater system would have to meet certain standards.

Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 15 August, 2014. To make submissions:

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
