Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees

Submissions closed on 15 November 2019, 05:00 PM


Animals are an important part of how we choose to live our lives and the enjoyment we get out of them.

Submissions closed at 5.00pm on Friday, 15 November 2019.

This includes our pets and livestock, poultry and bees. The Council is in the process of reviewing the Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw and is interested to see if it has got the balance right between recognising the importance of animals whilst ensuring that they don’t create a nuisance to surrounding neighbours.

Any comments or feedback that we receive will go towards informing the bylaw review and deciding what, if any, changes are required to the bylaw.

The Council will then go through a formal consultation process with the opportunity for public submissions and hearings.
