The purpose of this discussion document

A Bill has been introduced to Parliament that, if passed, will mean changes for how freedom camping works in Aotearoa New Zealand. You can have your say about what these changes might look like.

This discussion document contains our (MBIE) proposals for new freedom camping regulations. Regulations are the detailed rules that are not written in the Bill. They include details like ‘how much a fine will be’ or ‘what technical requirements self-contained vehicles must meet’. Your feedback on the proposals in this document will be used to help the Government make its final decisions about the new freedom camping regulations.
