∑††††† The requestor and all eight consulted residents support the proposal.
7.††† This restriction is made pursuant to the provisions of the Hutt City Council Traffic Bylaw 2007 (Amended 20 November 2014).
8.††† These changes can be funded from Councilís 2016/2017 signs and markings budget.
9.††† In making this recommendation, officers have given careful consideration to the purpose of local government in section 10 of the Local Government Act 2002.† Officers believe that this recommendation falls within the purpose of the local government. It does this in a way that is cost-effective because it utilises standard road markings and signs.
