The Council is required to review bylaws periodically to make sure they are up-to-date and continue to meet the needs of the community and the Council.

The Local Government Act 2002 requires bylaws to be reviewed within five years of first being made, and then at least once every ten years after that.

A review may also be prompted by legislative changes, operational changes, or due to a Council resolution.

When a bylaw is made, amended or revoked, it generally has to undergo a public consultation process.

When consultation is underway, the proposed bylaw (or amendment or revocation) will be listed at have your say.
