Freedom Camping Closed

Christchurch freedom camping has been talked about between locals and in the media since the Christchurch City Council bylaw allowing campers to park up at a number of locations around Christchurch including the car park at Addington Park.

“Freedom camping sites at Wainui, Addington Park’s car park, Lower Styx River and Windsport Park, off Humphreys Dr in Ferrymead, would be closed from March 16 to May 31.

Council chief executive Karleen Edwards said the bylaw would be reviewed, but it was possible the sites would not reopen next summer.”  reported The Press.
