Draft Animals Bylaw 2020


Closed: 5pm Monday 2 March 2020

We are reviewing the New Plymouth District Bylaw 2008 Part 2 Animals in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002. The proposed changes are intended to better address the perceived problems in relation to animals. The bylaw provides measures to regulate the keeping of animals (including pigs, poultry, bees, livestock and cats) to minimise the impact on animal owners’ neighbours and to ensure they do not create a nuisance or endanger health; and to regulate the slaughtering of animals to avoid causing nuisance or offence.  The review also proposes a standalone Animals Bylaw 2020.
