Porirua City is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
Porirua City Council reviewed the General Bylaw and proposed a new bylaw, the Public Places Bylaw 2019.
We held a public consultation of this proposed change, which closed on 8 May, 2019.
We aimed to manage the use of public places for trading, entertainment and other activities for the well-being and enjoyment of the public.
It is also an effective way to protect the public from nuisance, maintain public health and safety and to minimise the potential for offensive behaviour.
