Fire and Emergency New Zealand

Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) will start exercising fire control powers, rather than councils, progressively through to 1 July 2018, as councils decide to revoke their fire control bylaws or bylaws expire. Until then fire permits for the Hauraki District can be applied for through Hauraki District Council providing the requirements meet the FENZ conditions. For more information see Fire and Emergency New Zealand website www.checkitsalright.nz
