All camping grounds must comply with the Camping Ground Regulations 1985 unless a special exemption for some aspects has been granted by the Council.

Council's Environmental Health Officers can assist you with advice and information, or undertake inspections.

Our officers can advise you on:

  • If it is appropriate for you to operate your business at the address.
  • Operating requirements in the area, including parking and lighting.
  • Whether you need a resource consent.

Before opening a new camping ground, or taking over an existing camping ground, email to discuss your plans.
