James Lochead made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Auckland Council should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: James Lochead

Dear Auckland Council,

I have been informed their is a bylaw which predates the Auckland council being formed that prohibits skateboards being used within Waiuku town centre.

I have been told by several business owners and business association the police won't remove the skate boards of offenders because. "The By-law predates, the Auckland council and this renders them powerless."

Did the council until the review of the bylaws remove their validity, I was under the impression by-laws were still enforceable.

Yours faithfully,

James Lochead
