Navigation Safety Bylaws 2012
The Navigation Safety Bylaws ensure boaties, jetski users, kayakers, waka ama, rowers, fishers and swimmers are able to safely enjoy their time in and on Hawke's Bay rivers and coastal waters.
These bylaws were open to public consultation in 2011 and, as a result of community input, a number of changes were made to improve safety when the bylaws were approved in 2012.
As well as this booklet, there is a Water Recreation Guide Brochure which summarises key elements of these bylaws and includes all the maps on one page. Copies are available at Hawke's Bay Regional Council offices, visitor information centres, yacht and boat clubs and the Coastguard.
