Auckland Council plans 100 sites for freedom campers

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 29 November 2018

Auckland Council has put up a list of over 100 parks where people will be allowed to sleep in their vehicles without having to pay. But some locals whose properties border the free "campsites" aren't too happy, and some people who live in their cars fear they'll be penalised if they don't follow the new rules. The aim of the bylaw is to give the council some control, with enforcement officers able to issue $200 fines.
