Notice of Revoking Stratford General By-Laws 2008 (Chapter 15)

Add to favourites

Urban Fire Prevention Bylaw

The Stratford District Council by resolution on 9 April 2019, revoked its Urban Fire Prevention Bylaw.  

This bylaw has been superseded by the implementation of the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017.

As a result of the new legislation a number of functions formerly undertaken by Council are now the responsibility of Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ). In particular, Council is no longer responsible for opening and closing fire seasons (i.e. fire bans) and granting fire permits.

People wishing to enquire about restricted fire seasons and fire permits should now contact FENZ via www.checkitsalright.nz.

Smoke nuisance as defined under the Health Act 1956 should be reported to Stratford District Council on 06 765 6099 24 hours, but if the smoke is from a fire that you think is presenting an immediate danger to life or property, your first call should be to FENZ.

Food Safety Bylaw

The Stratford District Council by resolution on 9 April 2019, revoked its Food Safety Bylaw.

This bylaw has been superseded by the provisions of the Food Act 2014 and the Food Regulations 2015.
