Kaikōura District Council proposes the adoption of a new bylaw to place controls on discharge of waste from trade properties (other than waste similar to domestic sewage) to the community wastewater system.

The bylaw will control what can be discharged and will impose charges for discharges that are very large in volume and/or have a composition that could adversely affect the operation of the community wastewater reticulation and treatment systems.

All premises discharging trade waste which can have a potentially harmful effect on these systems will be required to hold trade waste consents that authorise these discharges and place responsibility on consent holders to have and maintain measures that limit these adverse effects.

Most, if not all, New Zealand Councils already have such a bylaw.

A more detailed Statement of Proposal is available here, a copy of the proposed new bylaw is available here.  You can also receive a copy of both from the Council on request.

Submissions in respect of the making of the Trade Waste Bylaw 2022 can be made in writing and should be addressed to:


The Chief Executive

PO Box 6


Submissions must be received by 4 July 2022
