Stormwater Drainage Bylaw

The Council is publicly consulting its proposed Stormwater Drainage Bylaw 2018, which is intended to protect public health, safety and the environment in relation to the management of the quality and quantity of stormwater and land drainage discharges. It also includes some new controls on activities on private property to reduce flood risk. The bylaw also extends requirements for pollution prevention plans for medium risk sites throughout the district to reduce the discharge of contaminants into Council stormwater or land drainage systems. High risk site discharges would continue to be consented/managed by Environment Canterbury.
