Rules for animals
Owners of chickens, bees, goats or other animals can now have their say on a proposed Auckland Council bylaw.
The new Animal Management Bylaw will replace 18 sets of regulations inherited from former councils.
It will introduce a single approach to managing animals other than dogs, ensuring nuisance and risks to public health and safety are minimised. The bylaw includes proposals about keeping roosters, goats, pigs and geese.
‘‘There is a growing trend of people wanting to keep animals in urban backyards which is usually a good thing but can cause problems if not managed properly,’’ Councillor Calum Penrose says
The bylaw cover animal issues.
