Legacy Bylaw Provisions on Freedom Camping 2015

This bylaw sets restrictions around freedom camping, to ensure our spaces can be enjoyed by all.

You should know

In 2017 we reviewed our approach to managing freedom camping. Findings from the review led us to a decision to develop a new bylaw under the Freedom Camping Act 2011.

We asked you to have your say on the proposed bylaw in early 2019. The consultation has closed, and we are currently reviewing your feedback.

You can read more about the proposed bylaw at the Proposed Freedom Camping in Vehicles bylaw consultation page.

What the current bylaw provisions regulating freedom camping do

The bylaws prohibit freedom camping, except in designated areas.

Any freedom camping in designated areas must be in accordance with any conditions applicable for that area.
