Two South Wairarapa District Council campsites located in New Zealand‘s south coast could close soon following warning about the dangers of flooding after a major weather incident.

Council chief executive Harry Wilson said during a council meeting that he was looking at closing the Te Waiti campsite. In last week’s Maori Standing Committee, he added the Tora campsite to the list, a report said.

“My responsibility under workplace safety and health is to make a call if I perceive there is a significant public risk,” Wilson said at the committee meeting.

The council had revised their maps to reflect more severe weather predicted because of climate change, which means that more flooding is expected within a short time. The two campgrounds could be unsafe in the event of flooding.

The board released an announcement that they have heard from various campers and residents of Te Awaiti and Tora North/Awhea campgrounds. The residents were concerned about the possibility of closing the campgrounds.

The campgrounds weren’t expected to be closed for day trips. However, overnight stays could be prohibited.
