City council monitoring freedom campers

DUNEDIN, New Zealand — An influx of freedom campers at Macandrew Bay is being closely monitored by the Dunedin City Council, as part of its review of trial camping allowances, Otago Daily Times reports.

The council recently relaxed its freedom camping rules, allowing up to five non-self-contained vehicles to be parked near the Macandrew Bay public toilets overnight, Otago Daily Times explains.

Residents tell Otago Daily Times up to 30 vehicles a night, as well as tents, have been seen in the area.
