We’re proposing to make some changes to the street use and public places bylaw to help ensure you can enjoy Tauranga’s public streets safely and free from nuisance.
The proposals are based on your feedback through prior engagement. This is a formal consultation, and it’s the last opportunity to have your say before we make these changes law. Tell us if you think we got this right. Submissions close at 5pm on Thursday, 2 August 2018.
Read the draft amended bylaw and supporting information, and tell us if you support the proposed changes, if you don’t, and/or if you have any other changes you want us to consider.
We want to know if you support introducing rules around begging and rough sleeping. We also want to know if you think we should allow people to travel on the footpaths and roads through our main centres (city centre, Mount Maunganui and Greerton) on skateboards, scooters and roller skates.
What about bikes? Rules around where you can ride your bike is covered by the Land Transport Act 1998, not our bylaw.
