Stormwater Bylaw 2015

The Stormwater Bylaw provides a consistent regulatory approach for managing the public stormwater network.

​What the Stormwater Bylaw does

The bylaw:

  • ensures that the public stormwater network and private stormwater systems are of a consistently high standard throughout Auckland
  • requires on-site stormwater devices on private land to be well maintained, as they form part of the wider stormwater network
  • manages activities on private property that have adverse impacts on the public stormwater network
  • enables the council to develop stormwater controls for specific areas and local issues.
