Draft Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw

 

Seeking submissions

Southland District Council are currently seeking submissions on the draft Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw. Submissions will be accepted until 5pm on Monday 13 April 2020.

The draft bylaw contains rules about keeping animals such as pigs, horses, poultry, cats and cattle, and about animal noise. The draft bylaw does not have any rules about dogs. Rules about dogs are in Council’s Dog Control Bylaw.

The draft bylaw is reasonably similar to the current Keeping of Animals, Poultry and Bees Bylaw 2010. The current bylaw is due to be reviewed.

You can review the proposed changes to the existing bylaw and a draft of the proposed bylaw in the statement of proposal.
