Western Bay of Plenty District Council bylaws consultation
We are seeking your input into the review and development of bylaws related to Council’s wastewater, water supply and stormwater systems.
Council is empowered by the Local Government Act 2002 to make these bylaws, and is proposing them for the following reasons:
Draft Trade Wastes Bylaw: To protect Council’s wastewater system, to set the framework for the acceptance of wastewater from industrial or trade premises and to allow for the recovery of treatment costs.
Draft Wastewater Drainage Bylaw: To protect Council’s wastewater system and to protect public health. We are also seeking feedback on the Draft Terms and Conditions for the Acceptance of Wastewater Drainage, which set out the conditions of supply and the obligations of customers.
Draft Water Supply System Bylaw: To preserve and protect Council’s water supply systems and to protect public health. It also sets out the conditions of supply and the obligations of consumers.
Draft Stormwater Bylaw: To control the discharge of contaminants into the public stormwater network and to protect the public stormwater network from damage or alteration.
