Stock Movement Bylaw

The purpose of this Bylaw is to place controls on the movement of stock animals on roads within the Ōtorohanga District.

The Bylaw was last reviewed in 2014.

Main provisions of the Bylaw are:

  • Imposition of controls on any movements of stock along or across roads in the Ōtorohanga District (except in the case of an escape).
  • Establishing Drovers Permits to authorise and control stock movements along roads that are large in the number of animals and/or the distance travelled.
  • Requirement for the construction of underpasses for stock movements where movement is frequent and of a high volume.
