Has FNDC Reserves Bylaw been revoked?

Leo Exel made this Official Information request to Far North District Council

The request was partially successful.

From: Leo Exel

Dear Far North District Council,

My understanding is that under the Local Government Act 2002, a new bylaw must begin to be reviewed within five years. There is then a two year 'window' when a Council can spend time consulting with the community, before a revised bylaw is enacted.

If this does not occur, under the LGA, a bylaw is considered to be 'revoked'. That is, it no longer applies, if the time frame is not met.

The FNDC Reserves Bylaw came into effect on 24.12.2010, replacing a 1990 bylaw. That means it was a new bylaw, and a review should have been completed, at latest, by 24.12.2017.

Has the FNDC Reserves Bylaw been revoked, as per the LGA? If not, please provide Council's rationale as to why you consider this bylaw to be operative, despite the above information.

Yours faithfully,

Leonie Exel

Dear Ms Exel,

 

Official information request - RFS 3927502, 3927508

 

I refer to your information requests as referenced above, the responses
have been drafted and are almost ready to provide to you. However, Council
find it necessary to check the accuracy of the information that will be
provided to you; key Council staff with which consultation is required
remain on annual leave though will return next week.

 

Therefore we are anticipating a short delay in getting the information to
you. Pursuant to section 14(1)(b) of the Local Government Official
Information and Meetings Act 1987 we will extend the date with which the
information will be provided to Friday 8 February 2019 if not sooner.

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Yours faithfully

I have sent this issue on to the Ombudsman as the reply did not satisfy me that FNDC has legal, non-revoked bylaws, including the Reserves Bylaw.
