The document includes a summary of what’s proposed and why, the draft bylaw itself, and a map showing what activities can happen where.
This bylaw is designed to support and enable the Kai Iwi Lakes (Taharoa Domain) Reserve Management Plan, adopted by Kaipara District Council last September, which sets out how the lakes will be managed and developed over the next 10 years.
Northland Regional Council's bylaw aims to enable the many different water-based uses of Kai Iwi Lakes – such as swimming, boating, waterskiing, jetskiing, kayaking and board sports – in as safe and sustainable way as possible.
