Not sure what "rule book" you are referring to, but I was referencing the council's Freedom Camping Bylaw 2016 https://www.southtaranaki.com/uploaded_ ... ebsite.pdf
There are 3 classifications of council land: FC prohibited (Clause 6 and Schedule 1), restricted (included tenting) (Clause 7 and Schedule 2) and permitted (Clause 8). Specifically Clause 8.1 states:
"Generally freedom camping is permitted in any vehicle accessible area within the South Taranaki District; however, this is restricted to self-contained vehicles only, unless it is a restricted or prohibited significant site as detailed within section 6.2 of this Bylaw or in Schedules One or Two of this Bylaw or any other enactment."
Schedule 1 lists 43 prohibited sites of which 9 are cemeteries and the majority of the remainder are urban sportsgrounds. Schedule 2 lists 32 restricted sites where FC is allowed, including 10 for tenting. Many of these are near or adjacent to prohibited sites in Schedule 1. Also remember that the vast majority of roads and streets fall in the FC permitted class.
Sounds pretty permissive to me.
