Land Transport Rule: Regulatory Stewardship (Omnibus) Amendment 2018
In August 2018, the NZ Transport Agency consulted, on behalf of the Minister of Transport, on proposed changes to Land Transport Rules, set out in Land Transport Rule: Regulatory Stewardship (Omnibus) Amendment 2018 ('the Omnibus').
Consultation on the proposed changes was carried out to ensure that legislation was sound and robust and that the Rule development process took account of the views of, and the impact on, people affected by proposed Rule changes.
The Transport Agency received a total of 41 submissions on the proposed changes and the issues that were raised during consultation were analysed and taken into account in preparing final draft amendment Rules for the Minister of Transport's consideration.
Coming soon: new rules for councils (18 April 2019) Councils may have to create bylaws to bring effect to recent amendments to the Land Transport Rules – particularly around enforcement for signs and electric vehicle parking.
