Auckland is a ‘red light’ district anyway…

New signage regulations for residential brothels mean streets housing families and children could easily become a K’Rd-style red light district, a lobby group says.

Under the new council rules, brothels in residential Auckland will soon be allowed small signs advertising their sex services — but flashing lights or sexualised shapes and images are being ruled out.

The move is part of Auckland Council’s review of different bylaws inherited from seven councils, and the replacement regional bylaw will be effective from October 1.

Bob McCoskrie, national director of right-wing lobby group Family First, said brothels should not be in residential areas or near sensitive sites such as schools, churches or marae — no matter how large or small.

“The bylaws needs to give priority to the concerns and demands of families and create a bylaw that minimises the harms of the flawed Prostitution Reform Act.
