Camp ambassadors sought
The Whangarei District Council is seeking expressions of interest from community groups or residents who want to volunteer as freedom camping ambassadors. The new ambassadors would help promote responsible camper behaviour and achieve voluntary compliance with freedom camping rules. They will work at Whangarei’s 10 busiest freedom camping sites — Ruakaka Beach Reserve, Wehiwehi Rd in Matapouri, Kowharewa Bay, Sandy Bay, Woolleys Bay, Whananaki North, Tamaterau, Parua Bay, Mt Manaia and Ocean Beach. Those interested can visit www.wdc.govt.nz/ResponsibleFree domCamping. Application forms are also available from the council at Forum North or by contacting WDC Responsible Freedom Camping Co-ordinator, Sue Halliwell, on (09) 470 3196 or Susan.Halliwell@wdc.govt.nz. Applications close on November 9.
