Call for submissions - begging and rough sleeping provisions in street use bylaw

Communications from Tauranga City Council

Tauranga's current street use bylaw prohibits begging and rough sleeping within 5m of shops in defined commercial areas. This is not enforced by the police, and council staff do not have the power to issue infringements or forcibly remove individuals who are breaching the bylaw without a Court order. Council is proposing to remove the provisions from the bylaw as it considers a bylaw is not the most appropriate way of addressing the perceived problem in relation to begging and rough sleeping in Tauranga.

Improving connections on Ngatai Road

Communications from Tauranga City Council

On Tuesday 21 January we are starting with the improvements works on Ngatai Road between Otumoetai Road and the Matua Saltmarsh.

With three schools in the area, we are especially mindful of the safety of our children going to and from school. These works will not only help them in their daily journeys but also contribute to better connections between Bellevue, Matua, Otumoetai, Pillans Point and the central city.

Traffic management will be in place while we start with the first element of the project: the build of two shared crossings. This will include stop/go traffic control.

For more information, please check our website: www.tauranga.govt.nz...
