Draft Trading in Public Places Bylaw

We are no longer accepting submissions on the Draft Trading in Public Places Bylaw

Mobile shops, stalls and trading in public places adds character and vibrancy to our district and can help us to attract visitors, but it needs to be well managed so it doesn’t cause a nuisance for our residents.

We have reviewed our bylaw (currently known as the Mobile Shops, Stalls and Hawkers Bylaw), and we're proposing a few changes including adding more permitted sites for mobile trading.

Key Changes:

We are proposing to rename to Mobile Shops, Stalls and Hawkers Bylaw to ‘Trading in Public Places Bylaw’, as we believe it more clearly describes what the bylaw is about.

We want to introduce new permitted and discretionary sites for mobile traders in places that aren't currently catered for, such as Lake Hood and Rakaia.
