Traffic Bylaw consultation
Council is responsible for managing the safe and efficient use of the District’s roads. A new traffic bylaw has been drafted which will replace the previous Kaikōura District (Traffic Control) Bylaw 1995 and the Kaikōura District Council Speed Limits Bylaw 2005.
The proposed bylaw will allow Council, by resolution, to control and manage the road space including parking, stopping and waiting, speed limits, traffic movement, use of the road, protection of berms and road damage to ensure that traffic movement and parking is both efficient and safe.
The proposed bylaw will not change the current parking rules. Council will be reviewing all current parking rules later in 2018 and the public will have a chance to input.
The proposed bylaw is out for public consultation from September 6 to October 6. Hearings will take place in October 2018. The bylaw is scheduled for adoption at the 31 October Council meeting following Council deliberations on any submissions received.
