A review of the Invercargill City Council bylaw used to enforce parking identified several items that needed to be changed to make the bylaw more effective and less confusing.
The Council will repeal that bylaw and introduce two new bylaws – one for Parking Control and one for Roading and Traffic. Council invites submissions on the bylaws; submissions will close on 29 January 2016 and hearings will be held on 15 February 2015.
The main purpose of the proposed Roading and Traffic Bylaw is to promote public safety and effectively regulate pedestrian, animal and traffic movement in the road corridors of the Invercargill City Council area as well as enhance the safety and enjoyment of the public, ensuring the functionality of the roads while providing a clear understanding of the use of roads.
Also, the bylaw will help to minimise nuisance on the beach and help to protect the sand dunes and natural environment.
The aim of the Parking Control Bylaw is to control parking activities and ensure parking is enforced to protect and enhance the safety and enjoyment of the public. It also aims to provide a clear understanding of the use of roads and public walkways as well as parking restrictions.
