Floodway and Drainage Bylaw

Bylaws are necessary for the security and efficient operation of flood protection and drainage schemes.

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council Floodway and Drainage Bylaw 2008 (288KB, pdf) was established to protect the scheme assets that have been constructed to prevent damage, danger and distress to the community from river flooding and problems associated with a lack of drainage. It is crucial that these assets are functioning properly when needed.
