We’re consulting on changes to the Selwyn District Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw.

The Council has adopted the draft Traffic and Parking Bylaw for public consultation. The draft Bylaw is an update of the 2009 Bylaw.

The proposed changes to the bylaw would allow for residents-only parking to be created in case of need. They would also clarify rules around parking on berms and planting or landscaping on a grass verge.

The proposed changes add electronic scooters to the bylaw and a provision prohibiting people from parking cars with ‘for sale’ signs.

You can read a full copy of the Statement of Proposal on why the Council is looking to change the bylaw and the proposed Draft Bylaw at the links below.

The report to Council includes a summary of the key changes to the bylaw.
