All areas in Marlborough/Kaikoura district will be RESTRICTED Fire Season as from 0800hrs Thursday 22 February 2018, this means you need a permit to have a fire in the open.

Fire Permits are required for all fires on Public Conservation Land other than for an approved campground fire or a fire lit for cooking or warmth.

If you have been burning over winter check that pile of ash, dig into it, it may still be hot.

If you lit a fire before the Restrictions came in and it’s still smouldering or burning you need a permit.
