Maritime facilities bylaw consultation opens today

Maritime facilities bylaw consultation opens today

Recreational boaties and commercial marine farmers will find Council's Maritime Facilities Bylaw consultation worth a look.

The proposed Maritime Facilities Bylaw does not change any fees, but it simplifies Council's rules around facilities like wharves, jetties, boat ramps, quays, piers, and pontoons.

Essentially, it's a streamlined version of the former Wharves and Coastal Structures Bylaw that everyone has been used to already, with the removal of elements that no longer apply.

If you're not familiar with that Bylaw, it dealt with rules about things like cleaning facilities, responsibility for damage to facilities, and powers granted to Maritime Facilities Managers.

The submission forms will be available through Council's online consultation portal from 9 October to 9 November 2015.

Submitters need to tell Council what decision they would like made, the reasons for their submission and whether or not they want to present to Council in person at the Hearing.

Submitters who want to be heard will be invited to present their submissions at a Hearing held in Thames on Thursday 19 November. If you want to present at the Hearing, you will be contacted and have the opportunity to confirm the approximate time.

The final bylaw will be put to Council on Wednesday 9 December 2015 for adoption.

If you prefer to make your submission on paper, instead of online, you can either drop it in to one of our offices in Thames, Coromandel town, Whitianga or Whangamata or post your printed and completed form to Thames-Coromandel District Council, Private Bag, Thames

Gordon Campbell: On Why An Attack On Iran Is Back On The Agenda

Reportedly, Christopher Luxon has the edge on Simon Bridges in National’s leadership contest although there is no firm evidence for that hunch. So, one hesitates about joining a media echo chamber that amplifies Luxon’s chances ahead of the 3pm caucus meeting today. You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet. Or even perhaps: Luxon hasn't got the numbers, and his people start talking to the media to talk up his support so that he gets a nicer consolation prize... More>>
