Freedom Camping Bylaw 2017 Amendments

Submissions are invited until Monday 16 November 2020.

Submissions are invited from 16 October to 16 November on some proposed amendments to the Freedom Camping Bylaw.

These include:

  • Removal of the Waitapu Bridge site – Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is taking over control of the area and we no longer have jurisdiction for freedom camping.
  • Removal of the Taupata Gravel Reserve – due to continued concerns with danger to nesting birds and difficulties with effective policing.
  • Removal of the Waikoropupu Springs Road Reserve – area now under Department of Conservation control and Council has no jurisdiction.
  • Addition of a new site on the former Rototai Tip site.
  • Amending the location of the site on Decks Reserve to accommodate the new library construction.
  • Amending the permitted camping area at Alexander Bluff Road Reserve to identify the area where camping is allowed.

Any person or organisation may make written submissions, which must be received by 4.30 pm on Monday 16 November 2020.
