Nuisance Bylaw – Vehicle Crossings

Vehicle crossing


Nuisance Bylaw 2019 – amendment adopted

At the Hearing and Deliberations meeting on 9 September 2020 the Council considered all feedback from the community on the proposed changes to include vehicle crossing rules in the Nuisance Bylaw. Council adopted the proposed changes on the same date and it will come into effect on 1 October 2020.

What is a Vehicle Crossing?

A vehicle crossing is where a vehicle can cross from a road onto a private property.

About our Policy

Our nuisance bylaw contains rules for minimising nuisance in our public spaces and on private property.

The bylaw now includes rules relating to vehicle crossings so that you have to apply for a permit to build or change a vehicle crossing. It also includes details on permit conditions.

The Council made the following comments in relation to feedback received on the vehicle crossing changes to the Bylaw:

  • The bylaw will enable Council to act on issues with existing vehicle crossings.
  • The bylaw does not apply to vehicle crossings located on rural State Highways. These vehicle crossings fall under New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) jurisdiction.
  • Roading issues raised during the feedback process that were not related to the bylaw have been forwarded to the Council’s transportation manager, or if applicable NZTA.
