Proposed amendments

Council is currently consulting on a proposed Camping in Public Places Bylaw.

To ensure we have consistent rules, amendments to the Parking and Traffic Bylaw are also necessary as part of the proposal.  The amendments are discussed in the consultation documents for the proposed Bylaw and we welcome any feedback you may have. 

If you wish to view the consultation documents or comment on the proposed amendments, click on the link below which will take you to the consultation information on the proposed Camping in Public Places Bylaw where you can provide your feedback.


The Parking and Traffic Bylaw covers parking and traffic management issues.

It provides a framework for Council to  determine where and how parking is allowed, any time restrictions that apply and the payment of fees for parking if required. It includes determining where Loading Zones and Clearways are located and other parking restrictions. It also provides for exemptions for disabled drivers and emergency services.

Traffic management includes restrictions on U turns, establishing one way streets and establishing cycleways. It also covers things like permits for cranes and waste taker bins on our roads.

The bylaw was last fully reviewed in 2005 and last amended in 2012.
