Amendment to Speed Limits Bylaw

Amendment 1 to the Speed Limits Bylaw was approved on 29 August 2013 and came into effect on 30 September 2013. The Amendment provided additional variable speed zones to Schedule M of the Bylaw, which relate to the following Nelson schools:

  • St Josephs School
  • Hampden Street School
  • Nelson College
  • Nelson College for Girls
  • Nelson Intermediate School
  • Victory School (extension of existing zone)
  • Tahunanui School (extension of existing zone) 

A variable speed school zone requires motorists to slow down to 40km/hr at the beginning and end of the school day, making it safer for children arriving and leaving school.

A copy of the original Statement of Proposal is available below.
