Traffic Control Bylaw 2016

The objective of this Bylaw is to facilitate traffic management and parking control measures with respect to roads, public places and parking areas under the control of Tasman District Council.

The Bylaw came into effect on 1 November 2016. New measures in the bylaw include:

  • A ban on displaying ‘for sale’ signs on cars parked on Richmond’s Salisbury Road, prompted by concerns from schools about the safety and visibility of students being picked up and dropped off on the busy thoroughfare, as well as the availability of parking for the general public and school communities.
  • New short-term parking spaces (2 minutes) outside Waimea College and Waimea Intermediate to make it easier for parents to drop-off/pick-up their children without driving into the school grounds.   
  • P180 time-restricted spaces on Stephens Bay Road, Kaiteriteri near the beach to ensure these spaces are available for families using the beach, instead of being occupied by boat trailers.   
  • Ban on overnight parking within the Motueka’s Saltwater Baths Carpark to discourage freedom camping in this location.

The Traffic Control Bylaw 2016 is accompanied by the Traffic Control Devices Register and map display. The register is the mechanism for the Council to record all authorised existing traffic control devices under the Consolidated Bylaw – Chapter 7 – Traffic Control Bylaw. By approving all existing traffic control devices in the register the Council ensures they can be enforced in the future.
