Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw

2 Jun 2021 17:07 | Amber Wakefield (Administrator)

Auckland United are seeking feedback from you on the proposed new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Te Ture ā-Rohe Tauhokohoko, Whakahaerenga me te Tango Kiriata Tūmatanui 2022 / Auckland Council Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw 2022 from Tuesday 8 June to Friday 16 July 2021.

About the proposed new bylaw

  • We recently checked how our trading, events and filming rules are working and identified improvements. These improvements will allow us to better minimise public safety risks, nuisance and misuse of council-controlled public places. We propose a new bylaw that:

  • continues to regulate trading, events and filming in a similar way to the current Bylaw
  • clarifies the need for rental micromobility devices to be approved under their own licence instead of a mobile shop licence as they currently are
  • clarifies which activities require an approval, don’t require an approval as long as certain conditions are met, and those which are not addressed in this bylaw
  • updates the title, structure, format, definitions, and wording to ensure that a new bylaw is easier to read, understand and comply with.
  • The proposal is the result of a statutory bylaw review completed in 2020 of the current Te Ture ā-Rohe Te Mahi Tauhokohoko me nga Takunetanga ki ngā Wāhi Marea / Trading and Events in Public Places Bylaw 2015, during which we also sought feedback from you.
