Overnight parking for certified self-contained vehicles

ReservesSituated on the east coast of the North Island, the Hastings District, with its wineries, beautiful beaches and spectacular landscape, is the perfect place to explore. Camping is an increasingly popular way of seeing the country, enabling visitors to save considerable money on accommodation, as well as the ability to enjoy some of the more scenic parts of the countryside.

The Hastings District Council recognises this trend, and provides a number of Designated Council Sites where overnight camping by Certified Self-Contained vehicles is permitted. Overnight camping is only allowed within the Hastings District on these designated sites, or in a Holiday Park/Camping Ground.

Voted the ‘Motor Home Friendly Town’ of 2010 by the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association, visitors are encouraged to come and enjoy all that the District has to offer.

Certified Self-Contained Vehicle

A Certified Self-Contained vehicle is designed to completely meet the ablutionary and sanitary needs of the occupants for a minimum of three days. Fresh water for drinking and cooking is stored in tanks. Waste water is collected in waste water tanks and disposed of via a dump station.

A self-containment certificate provides local and regional councils with a way to recognise that a vehicle poses minimal risk to the environment and public health. That way they are able to accommodate motor caravans at reserves and other areas where there are limited or no external facilities. Certification is available through the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association.

Vehicles without a certification sticker are not authorised to stay in any of the Hastings District Council designated camping areas, and must stay at one of the District’s commercial Holiday Parks or Camping Grounds.

Parking in Designated Council sites

Metered and timed street parking may be used by motorhomes and campervans as long as the vehicle does not extend beyond the end of the white line which marks the parking space.

Motor Caravan Dump Stations

A Motor Caravan Dump Station is available at Napier Road in Havelock North.

The Hastings Top 10 Holiday Park, located on Windsor Avenue, Hastings also has a dump station available for guest use only.

Recycling/Rubbish Disposal

All commonly recyclable materials can be disposed of free of charge at the Havelock North Recycling Depot (Martin Place, Havelock North) or at one of the two Hastings District Council Refuse Transfer Stations - Blackbridge (Mill Road, Clive) and Henderson Road (Henderson Road, Hastings).

All other rubbish should be disposed of at one of the Hastings District Council Refuse Transfer Stations either at Blackbridge, Clive or Henderson Road, Hastings.

For more information relating to hours of operation and charges for the Hastings District Council Refuse Transfer Stations.
