5.2.4 Bylaws


Bylaws have the effect of regulations, and can be enforced by the council.    

  1. The governing body can make bylaws to protect the public from nuisance, maintain health and safety, and minimise offensive behaviour [1]. Bylaws may also regulate activities relating to waste management, the keeping of animals, and trading in public places. Bylaws can also be used to protect land from damage or misuse (for instance, in cemeteries, parks, or reserves) [2].

  2. Further detail on bylaws can be found in Section 10.6.3: Bylaws. For more information, see Bylaws on the Auckland Council website.
