On 26 September 2016, the Palmerston North City Council adopted the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2016 and the Urban Fire Control Bylaw 2016. This follows the completion of the statutory review of the Palmerston North Nuisance Bylaw 2011.
Both Bylaws come into effect on 17 October 2016, with the exception of Part Three of the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw (relating to the licensing of commercial waste collectors) which comes into effect on 1 July 2017. The Palmerston North Nuisance Bylaw 2011 is repealed with effect from midnight on 16 October 2016.
The new Bylaws are available to view free of charge at the Customer Service Centre, 32 The Square, Palmerston North during business hours, or . A printed copy of each Bylaw may be supplied on request.
