The Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) Act came fully into force on 1 July 2018. This legislation contains a number of provisions that relate to the matters contained in Council's previous Fires in the Open Air Bylaw.
As part of the new legislation coming into force, Council was required to review its bylaw to remove any matters that are now addressed in the FENZ legislation and are now the responsiblity of Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
Council completed this process on 26 July 2018, and revoked its Fires in the Open Air Bylaw in full.
Further information on restricted and prohibited fire seasons and associated matters can be found by following the link below.
