Animals Bylaw consultation

The Invercargill City Council is reviewing the Bylaw that regulates the keeping of animals, excluding dogs, within the District.

The Council proposes an amendment to the definition of Urban Area within the Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw to align with the Residential zones of the Invercargill City Council District Plan. The Council further proposes two new clauses are added to the Bylaw to:

  1. Prevent the keeping of pigs within the Urban Area.
  2. Create a maximum limit of 12 head of poultry within the Urban Area.

Note that your feedback should reach the Council by 5pm on Friday, 5 October 2018.
