Hey Neighbourly folk, remember there is a fire ban on.
It includes Kapiti Coast, Porirua, Wellington City and the Hutt Valley. Principal Rural Fire Officer Craig Cottrill says this means anyone wanting to light an outdoor fire will need to apply for a permit and follow the conditions listed on their permit.
"The ground is getting drier and fire danger has increased,” he says.
“The dry vegetation acts as fuel for a wildfire, meaning if a wildfire did start it could spread very quickly. We’ve seen this with a few vegetation fires in the area recently, including one in Makara last month where firefighters and helicopters worked hard over two days to put it out.”

A restricted fire season is in place for Wellington, with people requiring a fire permit if they wish to light an outdoor fire.

The prohibited fire season came into effect at 9am Monday and covers multiple areas in the region. If you are in Wairarapa/Tararua distrcict then a PROHIBITED fire season still remains.

Principal Rural Fire Officer Craig Cottrill says permit holders should follow the instructions provided carefully.

"The dry vegetation acts as fuel for a wildfire, meaning if a wildfire did start it could spread very quickly... We’ve seen this with a few vegetation fires in the area recently, including one in Makara earlier this month where firefighters and helicopters worked hard over two days to put it out," he says.

What you need to know:
- The restrictions cover the following areas: Kāpiti Coast, Porirua, Wellington City and the Hutt Valley.
- You cannot light an outdoor fire unless you have a permit.
- Gas and charcoal barbecues are permitted.
- Individuals that operate heavy machinery are advised to exercise caution when out in dry terrain. Fire crews advise to undertake work in cooler temperatures and in minimal wind.

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 20 - 30th March. This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together. If you’re hosting an event, make sure to register it on their website: neighboursday.org.nz/join-in

Show us how you’re celebrating community this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz
