Use of public places

Our public places are made to be enjoyed, but there are some regulations around signs, trading, and use of public places to ensure that public safety is the priority.

Signs and Use of Public Places Bylaw

Public safety is key so it’s important to know the rules around the use of public places. The Signs and Use of Public Places Bylaw covers everything from signs on footpaths to roadside grazing of livestock.

In September 2019 Council adopted new guidelines for use of public spaces in Palmerston North. Find out more.
