The FCA requires councils to allow freedom camping as the default position and to provide a schedule of places where, for given reasons it is NOT allowed. This draft bylaw turns that on it's head by providing a list of 11 places in the district where CSC vehicles may stop: and bans stopping in all other areas, with no reasons given.

It would be good if some of you who know the area could make simple submissions voicing your opposition to the widespread and unjustified (by the council) banning of CSC freedom Camping.

The forum will be doing so, but there is power in numbers :)

i think this says it all.if freedom camping is allowed then as a csc motorhomer we should have greater priverliges i dont think that the label freedom camper is appropiate after all we dont use tents and as csc motorhomers( the difference is huge) we should be distancing ourselves from this label when fighting for our rights with these councils to park in ower fine country i beleive that education is the answer is to educate these councilors, as stated in another post they didnt understand the csc standard they are voting on our future and they dont understand the full ramifactions. As a full time CSC travler im not going to s*** in my own yard :!:

use this as my submission if it helps

Yup Fellas - Good idea to distance ourselves from the "Freedom Camping" title. "Certified Self Containment" separates us quite nicely from the fly-by-nighters who mess up our "hood". We have a lot more to lose with our large investment than the back-packing 1 trip renters. I think we deserve far greater consideration for our efforts in being responsible campers. All power to those who are out there pushing our barrows and furthering our cause. Cheers Fellas.

As a submitter to the Kapiti DC Freedom Camping Bylaw, I got a message from Kapiti DC saying that the council was considering 3 options at a meeting on 30 August.

1 No bylaw or policy
2 Retain current Freedom camping policy and bylaw
3 New bylaw under Freedom camping Act.

The Council staff were recommending Option 2. The following link will take you to the council papers, or send me a PM if you want me to send you the document.
