He says residents have expressed concern around the impact of big bang fireworks - especially around this time of year, with Diwali and Guy Fawkes just around the corner.
Ryley says it's important to strike a balance when it comes to civil rights.
"It always comes to a situation where these two factions - if I can call them that - are fighting against each other at this time of year. We need to respect that this is a part of a religious belief, a religious celebration that has to be respected and that religious rights are paramount and important that they are enshrined in the constitution as well but unfortunately with wishy-washy bits and pieces of legislation nobody knows where we stand," he said.
