Designated Council Sites

Self-contained vehicle designated sites

Visitors are welcome to park overnight for a maximum of two nights per month, at any single location, where current self-contained warranted vehicles are permitted.

For more information on overnight stays in Hastings reserves see the Reserve for Overnight Parking page.

Specifically we ask that visitors:

  • Ensure that the current certified self-contained vehicle warrant is clearly displayed
  • Ensure you discharge motor home or camper-van black water (sewage) and grey water (sink and hand basin water) at designated motor caravan dump stations only
  • Take all litter away with you
  • Do not light any fires
  • Ensure all dogs are on leads at all times

There is also a site in the central city area where visitors can stay for a maximum of two nights. The parking is free overnight (6pm to 8am), however normal charges apply during the day (8am to 6pm).
