But the city council has investigated and found they are not breaching the bylaw, so it will not be following up. Grahams Rd residents have been phoning Fendalton- Waimairi-Harewood Community Board deputy chairman Sam MacDonald with complaints of camping activity outside the Waimairi Cemetery site. “Over the last fortnight I have had numerous complaints from local residents concerned about the possible freedom camping occurring outside the cemetery on Grahams Rd,” he said. City council head of regulatory compliance Tracey Weston said it has received three complaints in relation to this site. In the event that a breach of the Freedom Camping Bylaw 2015 has taken place, city council officers have the authority to issue an infringement notice to the value of $200 to the owner or occupier of the vehicle, she said. •Turn to page 6 Hunt for the GOLDEN EGG to win a GIANT Easter Egg* $15 $30 Don’t miss out!
