If you want to open a camping ground where you charge people to stay on your land in vans or tents by fee, koha or donation, you need to register the Camping Ground.
There are regulations about the number of toilets and facilities you need to provide, a minimum size for each site, a safe drinking water supply is required and there will be a maximum number of people you can accommodate.
You need to draw a camp plan showing where all the sites will be and all the facilities such as toilets and showers, rubbish bins, kitchens and so on.
When we receive your application, an Environmental Health Officer will contact you and arrange to inspect your camping ground to see if it meets the requirements.
If it does, we will issue a certificate of registration.
Registration needs to be renewed annually, and we make annual visits to check your campground and the facilities like the water supply.
You will probably need a Resource Consent to open a new camping ground, so you should also talk to a Planner at Council about that before you apply to register.
The Government's camping grounds regulations detail all the requirements, mostly in the schedule at the end.
