Last week’s answer

On the street West Coast councils are providing free facilities for freedom campers this summer. In light of the impact on local businesses and the environment, what do you think?

APRIL 6 Greenstone Park Speedway, Youth King of the Coast, Mainland Ministocks 13 On the Road Comedy Show, Old Lodge, Hokitika 13 Glow Yoga, with Hannah, Greymouth Uniting Church, Tainui Street, 1pm-3pm 18 Aro Manu, album release tour, Barrytown Hall, 7pm 18-21 Ahaura Hunting and Fishing competition. 19-23 Easter weekend, Brunner Rugby League 100th Jubilee 27 Greenstone Park Speedway, King of the Coast

Ginette MacClure Greymouth “Don’t ask ratepayers to pay for toilets and upkeep of park sites for freedom campers. Users should pay even if a gold coin donation.”

Grant Fitzwilliam

Reefton

Julie Wilkinson

Hokitika

“I’m totally against freedom camping. I don’t think Reefton should have a free, prime river site when there already was one behind the racecourse and we have a beautiful camping ground too.”

“The council should not be responsible for free camping sites. Visitors should be directed to existing campgrounds, but more signposted facilities like toilets etc should be supplied.”

Athol Olson

Fr David Gruschow Westport “I feel for the local accommodation business owners who are missing out on much needed summer income.”

Hokitika

“There are other people working hard to make a living. Freedom campers should pay their way like everybody else.”

Greymouth

“I walk the cycle track a lot. There were two campervans parked up beside it and a pile of used toilet paper. What does that tell you?”
