Hi All,

Some of you will be aware the Council has adopted amendments to its FCA bylaw. Please follow this link for further information - https://www.nzmca.org.nz/news/minor-ame ... ct-updated

If you plan on visiting the Coromandel over summer then I would encourage you to read the updates and the bylaw (including maps) found on the Council's website - http://www.tcdc.govt.nz/Your-Council/Ne ... ect-today/

Happy travels and be safe on the roads :)

Cheers,
James

Thanks James, overall I think a fairly neutral adjustment. Thank you for your efforts this year and hope you have a well deserved break over Xmas.

Cheers, Dene

Gotta love the direct plug for NZMCA on their self certified definition.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the map of places allowed or banned, and the only other link is to a DOC site?

Hopefully they have a map like this one:

Clearly showing the restricted areas and available facilities?

NZMCA are in fact the body that administers self containment.

If you open the first link that James provided and read down a bit there is a link to the maps.

So the "map"s shown here?
https://www.nzmca.org.nz/data/content/N ... 20res2.pdf

Sorry, but to me those are very specific airial photographs, vs the map I linked, which is a cohesive overview is the entire district area, enabling me to plan a route and use sites based on their location along that route?

Very good, perhaps you could email TCDC for a link to one.

So am I to take it that the shaded areas in those map are the places your allowed to stay, being it restricted or what have you.
