The Auckland Council is taking its first prosecution against a member of the public for walking on tracks in the Waitakere Ranges that are closed to prevent the spread of Kauri dieback.

The bushwalker is facing three charges after entering a closed track three times over the last five months.

Phil Goff is mayor of Auckland.
