Maritime Facilities Bylaw

The Thames-Coromandel District Council is proposing to adopt a Maritime Facilities Bylaw. The proposed bylaw will replace the Wharves and Coastal Structures Bylaw which was adopted in 2008. This Bylaw was revoked in March 2015.

Submissions on our proposed Maritime Facilities Bylaw closed 9 November 2015.

To view the proposed bylaw, head to our consultation portal.

Hearings will be held on 19 November 2015. Council will consider the final bylaw for adoption on 9 December. If adopted, the bylaw will take effect from 14 December 2015, in time for the busy summer period.

Background to the bylaw.

The purpose of this bylaw is to provide for the orderly management and control of maritime facilities that are owned or under the control of the Thames-Coromandel District Council for the benefit and enjoyment of all users of those facilities.

The intention of the bylaw relating to each of the rules contained in the bylaw is to protect public health and safety through managing interaction between a variety of users on our maritime facilities, to provide for the appropriate maintenance of these facilities, and to recover reasonable costs either for use of the facilities or damage to them.

This bylaw applies to all maritime facilities owned or controlled by the Thames-Coromandel District Council.

We are accepting submissions on the proposed bylaw from 9 October 2015. To view the proposed bylaw head to our consultation portal.
