In recent years our District has experienced a significant increase in domestic and international travellers who choose to stay overnight in our public places.
Some of the effects of these activities have been a cause of concern for Council and our communities. Campers too have requested clear rules about where and how they can camp in public places in our District.
In 2016 Council commenced with the development of a Camping in Public Places Bylaw to provide a better regulatory framework and clearer rules on this type of activities.
Council's Camping in Public Places Bylaw was made on 28 September 2017 and came into force on 21 October 2017.
Under the Bylaw, Council can make minor changes to the layout of our designated sites by resolution.
In September 2018 Council changed the designated sites for Whananaki, Tamaterau and the i-Site carpark on Tarewa Road.
Information on these changes can be found by following the link below to the 27 September 2018 Council agenda on this website.
