Proposed change to the Navigation Safety Bylaw for Kai Iwi Lakes
We have recently introduced a new Navigation Safety Bylaw for the Kai Iwi Lakes so that we can manage water-based activities safely.
This bylaw doesn't set a five-knot speed limit area; therefore the limit is five-knots within 200 metres of the shoreline as per Maritime New Zealand regulations.
During the consultation on this bylaw many people said they wanted the bylaw to reduce the 200 metre, five-knot speed limit area on Lake Taharoa, so we are further consulting on two options on amending the bylaw:
Option one: status quo – keep the five-knot speed limit to 200 metres from shore
Option two: reduce it to 100 metres from shore
