Draft Responsible Camping Bylaw 2022

Further assessments completed and submissions sought

In its Interim Decision on submissions received to the Marlborough District Council’s draft Responsible Camping Bylaw 2022, the Hearing Panel directed that further assessment be undertaken of six sites and five road areas as potential restricted areas for freedom camping – paragraphs 79 and 86 of the Decision.

The Hearing Panel has considered the further assessments undertaken and directed that submissions be sought on the proposed inclusion of additional sites and areas for freedom camping.

The document below sets out the locations and the proposed restrictions that would apply if these sites and areas are ultimately included within the 2022 Bylaw.

A copy of the further assessments undertaken by the independent consultant can be found below.

The closing date for submissions is 21 October 2022.
