Selwyn District Council calls for new fire restrictions

From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 3 September 2018

The Selwyn District Council wants to bring in new fire restrictions as it tries to curtail the number of wildfires it combats every summer. The new rules would determine where new properties can be built and where vegetation can be planted. Locals are behind the changes proposed in the wake of the Port Hills fires but feel even more could be done.
