Unruly freedom campers find new spot

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Freedom campers forced out of a Christchurch car park after complaints of loud, violent behavior have found a new home, according to Stuff.

Short-stayers living in a New Brighton car park were kicked out by the Christchurch City Council on Saturday, Stuff reported.

Residents in the area had complained about noise, rubbish, and threats of violence from campers, who were using freedom-camping laws to live in the council-owned spot, Stuff explained.

Despite moving on, they didn’t go far – they have set up camp in a car park at Waimairi beach, five minutes away in North New Brighton, Stuff noted.
