Camping bans around Kaipara Harbour
Camping to be outlawed around bombing range
DoC intend to gazette the whole Papakanui area at Kaipara South Head (otherwise known as 'the bombing range') at the top of Muriwai Beach as no camping under the Freedom Camping Act-Phase 2. They also plan to use the Act to ban camping around Lake Ototoa in the same region. Tha same will apply to the Tapora area on the other side of the Kaipara Harbour.
This is proposed in documents being considered by the next Auckland Conservation Board meeting on 15 August.
Attached is the description of the locations and the DoC reasoning, along with an explaination of the application of the Freedom Camping Act (and the 'Phase 2')
