Enforcement Authorities

There is new legislation in place, and it introduces several new rules and requirements – and associated offences and penalties – for people wishing to freedom camp in a self-contained vehicle in New Zealand.


The regulatory framework gives enforcement powers to a range of authorities, including local authorities (regional councils and territorial authorities), the Department of Conservation, and Land Information New Zealand (together, Enforcement Authorities).
