Fire and Emergency NZ has advised that the Manawatū-Whanganui Coastal Zone will move to a restricted fire season from 8am on Friday 12 January until further notice due to warm temperatures, drying winds and a lack of rainfall. A restricted fire season means anyone planning on lighting an open-air fire will need a permit.Please be aware of the fire risk conditions – if in doubt, don't light!
Check if you need a permit
For the 2023/24 financial year (starting in July 2023) the council is making a one-off rates remission (reduction) of up to $500 available for households facing a rates rise higher than $700.
