What is a bylaw?

A bylaw is a rule or regulation made by a local authority such as the Upper Hutt City Council. The Local Government Act 2002 empowers the Council to make bylaws. The Act stipulates that the Council must first determine that a bylaw is the most appropriate way of addressing the particular problem and it then prescribes a procedure for making a bylaw. Council also has to review its bylaws every ten years.
