A restricted fire season is in place over the entire Gisborne district.
You must have a fire permit before you light any fire in the open air. This includes rubbish fires, incinerators, braziers, outdoor fireplaces, coal and wood-fire cooking, paper lanterns etc.
A total fire ban applies to all summer camping areas and all beaches.
The only exceptions are gas cookers and BBQ.
Permits can take up to 3 days to issue.
Waihirere Domain is one of our district’s destination reserves. In its ‘glory days’ with the swimming pool it was the place to go for family picnics.
Have your say on the future management plan for the Domain. The plan focuses on revitalisation of kaitaikitanga, protecting the natural and recreation values.
We welcome your feedback on the draft plan before 20 February
