Mayors tackle freedom camping

From The Panel, 4:08 pm on 8 March 2018

Mayors and deputies around the country are meeting with Tourism minister Kelvin Davis in Wellington today over continuing issues of freedom campers.

They're trying to come to a solution to the problem before next summer, after months of anger from locals about the messy behaviour of tourists.

We talk to Tasman District Mayor Richard Kempthorne about his plan for councils to be able to issue instant fines.
