New Beach use rules for Franklin District

August 03, 2006

New Franklin District Council rules for use of vehicles on beaches, including Kariotahi Beach came into force on August 1.

The rules prohibit all vehicles and horses on dunes. You may cross a dune to an adjoining property or road but only by the most direct route possible and in a manner not causing any damage to the dune. The new Bylaws carry fines up to $20,000.

The Council have set a beach "safe zone" at the Kariotahi Road end where most vehicle use is banned.
