Fire restrictions

18 February 2019

We’re all feeling the heat this summer, including the land.

You now need a permit to light a fire outdoors so you keep yourself and others safe.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has put the restriction over the whole of New Plymouth District from 18 February.

This means it’s illegal to light a fire outdoors – or let someone else light a fire on your land – without a Fire and Emergency permit.

This restriction lasts until further notice from Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
