Wellington City Council sought your views on the proposed changes to the Animal Bylaw.
Proposed changes to the policy reflected changes in animal ownership since the bylaw was last reviewed. For example, poultry are increasingly being kept as pets and the Council receives complaints about roosters crowing and the number of poultry kept on properties (and associated nuisances caused). We were also proposing to restructure the bylaw, creating separate sections for different animal types, to make it easier for people to access the information relevant to them. The proposed changes are summarised below:
