Keeping of Stock
Stock must be kept in a manner that is unlikely to cause a nuisance or create a danger to human or animal health.
Any stock deemed by an authorised Council Officer to be causing a nuisance or creating a danger to human or animal health may be impounded. The owner of the animal will incur an infringement fee as well as any costs associated with the care of the animal during the time of its impoundment.
Stock must be kept more than two metres from a residential dwelling except in areas zoned Rural in the District Plan. This does not apply to animals being ridden or driven.
Any stock shelter or stable must be built and maintained in compliance with all relevant regulations.
