The object of this bylaw is to protect public safety by preventing danger from fire.

Background and timeline

The initial resolution to make this bylaw was passed by the Christchurch City Council at a meeting of the Council held on 26 June 2014 and was confirmed, following consideration of submissions received during the special consultative procedure, by a resolution of the Council at a subsequent meeting of the Council on 13 November 2014.


This bylaw revokes the Christchurch City Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2007.
