Westland pub's freedom camping solution ruined by council

From Morning Report, 6:18 am on 15 November 2019

A Westland pub and restaurant that came up with an answer to freedom camping pollution problems feels it's been kicked in the teeth by its local council.

After four years letting people park up overnight on their grounds, the owners of the Woodstock Hotel are furious the council's quietly offered two nearby private, unregistered camp grounds toilets and rubbish bins, while declining their requests for help.
