Institute stronger controls on vehicle camping and encourage visitors to use local accommodation provider.
I'm not offering an opinion just pointing it out

Interesting - I would of thought they would be in favor of self containment and environmentally friendly processes, ie solar power, minimized water use etc- rather than using fixed environmentally unfriendly infrastructure.

perhaps more its another populist knee jerk not well thought out stance

Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with this question!

This policy is concerned with tourists who camp and aren’t concerned with, or don’t know how to camp responsibly. We want to ensure everyone camps responsibly and that facilities are available to accommodate that, so that beautiful Aotearoa and our precious environment is protected. We know a lot of New Zealanders travelling in caravans around their home here are already aware of what it means to be a tidy kiwi and this policy does not intend to limiting them.

I hope this makes sense! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
