Wellington City Council sought your views on the review of our fire bylaw. Changes from this review have been included in the Wellington Consolidated Bylaw 2008 - Part 3: Fire Prevention.
Statement of Proposal (1.1MB PDF) | Text version (11.4MB RTF)
The purpose of the fire bylaw is to minimise the potential fire risk arising from uncontrolled fires and to address public safety concerns and nuisance concerns.
Bylaws must be reviewed every 10 years under the terms of the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) and the fire bylaw needed to be reviewed by December 2015.
