Crowing rooster leads to two-year legal wrangle for Dunedin City Council

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

It is nothing to crow about, but the Dunedin City Council is locked in a long-running legal battle over a rooster.

''Any rooster-related questions?’' Dunedin mayor Aaron Hawkins asked his fellow councillors at a council meeting on Tuesday.

The question came as the council’s animal bylaw review came up in the council’s agenda, and feathers were quickly ruffled.

Roosters emerged as the prime target, with council community services general manager Simon Pickford revealing Dunedin was one of the few authorities to allow roosters in urban areas.

It was an issue that could drive neighbours '’to distraction’’, and the council needed to consult on the matter to see if there was appetite for change to the current bylaw.

Pickford confirmed in a statement to Stuff that the council was “involved in ongoing legal proceedings relating to multiple complaints of rooster noise emanating from a Pine Hill property”.

“We are unable to comment further on the specifics of the case while the matter remains before the courts.”
