Every seven years Waitaki District Council reviews the Roading Bylaw and makes changes if or where needed. This year we are also completing the Speed Limit Review which started back in May 2019 when we asked the public to tell us the roads and speed limit changes, they thought were important.
We are asking for public feedback on how our local roads are managed and finalising proposed speed limits in the second and final round of consultation.
The Local Government Act 2002 requires regular reviews of bylaws to be undertaken. The bylaw review process commenced in 2019 with a decision to split the existing bylaw into three as this would simplify use and enforcement processes.
The speed limits set under Council’s jurisdiction were last reviewed in 2012-13 as part of the 2013 Roading Bylaw review. Last year we asked the public to tell us what speed limits they thought certain roads in Waitaki should have and to suggest others.
We have now carefully considered the requests and aligned them with the NZTA Safer Journeys Risk Assessment Tool ‘Mega Maps
What is proposed?
It is proposed that the Roading Bylaw is split into three:
- Roading Bylaw 2020 – Traffic
- Roading Bylaw 2020 – Parking
- Roading Bylaw 2020 – Speed Limits
