A package of speed limit adjustments has been approved and will be implemented in August 2022.

The community had the opportunity to have their say on a proposal to change speed limits at more than 80 locations throughout the district.

At the Council meeting on Wednesday 6 July members considered and approved the proposal, with more than 20 adjustments made as a result of community consultation.

  • Consultation took place from 12 March to 12 April
  • 80% of respondents approved of the changes either in whole or in part
  • 23 changes were made to the original proposal as a result of submitter feedback.

Eight of the changes will require further consultation, which is programmed to take place after the coming election.

The process transferred from a bylaw to the National Speed Limit Register process as a result of legislative changes made by Waka Kotahi in May.

New signage will be installed during August 2022.

Full details of the listed changes by area and by speed limit are available here.
