Looking to open a campground in Napier? Well you’ve come to the right place! Council have various parameters and requirements you’ll need to satisfy, so your best bet is to get in touch with us in the early stages of your development.

Camping grounds at Kennedy Park. Licence To Operate A Camping Ground

All camping grounds must comply with the Camping Grounds Regulations 1985. An Environmental Health Officer can help you with this. They can do preliminary inspections at any stage of the development.

Here are the basic requirements:

  • There are specific space requirements for each site and number of ablution, laundry and kitchen facilities dependent on occupancy loading.
  • Paths and sites must be well marked and lit.
  • Water must be available at specific space intervals and facilities must be maintained in a tidy and clean condition.
  • You must organise management of record-keeping, pest control, building maintenance and cleaning practices.

 Registration is renewed each year from 1st April or if the business changes hands.

When you are ready to open, contact the Environmental Health Office for an inspection and apply for a certificate of registration. A fee will apply. You may not open until registration has been made and the EHO has approved opening of the premises.

You can print off the Camping Ground Registration Form from the 'Related Documents' at the top of this page, fill it out and bring it in to our Customer Service Centre at 215 Hastings Street. Or you can apply online.
