Wharves and boat ramps


Wharves and boat ramp rules

We need to talk about some changes we’re proposing to our bylaw on wharves and boat ramps. The bylaw sets out the rules and regulations on how people can use our facilities.

About our proposed bylaw | Ngā kaupapa o ngā ture

In general, we’re proposing to relax our Wharves and Boat Ramps Bylaw as some parts of it are unnecessarily strict. We have removed some parts which are covered in other bylaws, policies or in legislation. We’ve also updated the definitions to reflect our proposed bylaw, and tidied up the wording in general.
