Piha Domain Camping Ground Charges

Media Release

Piha Domain Camping Ground Charges

Waitakere City Council’s Finance and Operational Performance Committee has introduced new charges for the Piha Domain Camp Ground .

As of July 2007 there will be changes to the nightly rates charged at the Piha Camp Ground and some small changes in the way it operates too.

Finance and Operational Performance Committee chairman Councillor Janet Clews says the new camp ground charges and operational modifications have been introduced to bring the Piha Camp Ground into line with similar facilities.

“These changes are designed to ensure that the camp ground’s facilities meet the current standards expected of them and that the entire public has access to this unique and wonderful public holiday spot,” says Cr Clews.

“Piha is truly one of the jewels of Waitakere and this council wants to ensure the public can stay there and enjoy it,” she says.

The new charges coming into effect in July 2007 for an un-powered campsite will be $13 per night per adult and $6 per child. (Previously $10 and $6 respectively)

Powered campsite - $15 per adult and $8 per child. (Previously $12 and $7)

Caravan rent - $1500 per year plus a nightly fee, for a powered site when occupied, of $15 per adult and $8 per child. (Previously $1,125 per year including 100 nights accommodation or $672 per year plus a nightly fee when occupied of $10 per adult and $6 per child)

There are new cabin charges of $50 per night per adult, or $60 for two adults. Children are $15 per night.

(All new charges are maximum amounts that can be applied and the camp ground’s owner has the flexibility to charge less.)

A number of other changes will also take place at the camp ground by July 2007.

The council will take over cleaning duties for the campground’s toilet block – due to the public amenity role it plays throughout summer.

And in a move to free-up access for the public the council has reduced the number of permanent caravans by half.
From June 30, 2007 only 20 permanent caravans will be allowed at the Piha's 40 powered sites.

Many owners of these permanent caravans have erected illegal awnings and structures next to their caravans – these will have to be removed by June 30, 2007.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politics Of Why We’re Not Getting An Inquiry Into The White Island Disaster

The Ardern government has made an art form out of reviews and inquiries- when to hold them, when to fold them, and when to shelve the findings, virtually untouched. Among other things, the WorkSafe criminal proceedings into the Whakaari /White Island disaster look like the outcome of a conscious political strategy. The government is choosing this route instead holding a proper inquiry, because it can conveniently narrow the focus only to (a) the events prior to the eruption and (b) solely to possible violations of our labour laws...
