POURERERE BEACH CAMPING IN PUBLIC AREAS
Central Hawkes Bay District Council in association with the ‘Pourerere Beach Camping Committee’ uses a system of ‘Pre-Registration Permits’ for campers wishing to use designated ‘Beach Camping’ sites in public areas at Pourerere Beach over the summer camping period
NO PERSON(s) is allowed to ‘Beach Camp’ at Pourerere Beach without prior ‘Permitted’ approval from Council. This applies at all times. HOWEVER IN ADDITION TO THIS there are also special permissions in place for a period over each Summer.
In September of each year APPLICATIONS open for a site during the period for December to 6 February (inclusive) for periods of up to 14 days duration. This is to prevent overcrowding and damage to the beach surrounds.
EACH APPLICATION for a ‘permit’ during the above dates ONLY MUST be accompanied by the administration fee of $35 per permit. Payment may be made by internet banking ‘direct credit’ or by contacting the email address below for details of account numbers etc. Payment can also be made by cheque with the application form if mailing or by cash or EFTPOS at the Council offices in Waipawa or Waipukurau when delivering an application in person.
NO FEE: NO PROCESSING OF APPLICATION.
PLEASE NOTE that if site applications exceed the available space, the allocating Committee reserves the right to reduce allocations to 7 days if required. This may especially apply to the period 19 December 2016 to 9 January 2017. Also due to the expected high demand an application may not necessarily result in a site allocation. Unsuccessful applicants will have their ‘administration fee’ refunded.
Applications MUST include:
- Full name of applicant(s)
- Full postal address of applicant including postcode
- Contact phone number for applicant
- Dates that a site is required for (up to 14 days)
- Mode of camping (e.g. tent, caravan, camper-van etc)

Application forms are also available from Council offices in Waipawa and Waipukurau, E-mail applications will also be accepted at the e-mail address below providing the above information is included. However e-mail applications will not be processed until the ‘administration fee’ set out above is received by Council (If your dates are between 19/12 and 6/2 the following year).
