Fires on the beach

Fire and Emergency NZ (FENZ) are the responsible Authority under the changes in Legislation brought about by The Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2016. 

You need a permit for a beach fire all year round in Kāpiti.  Apply for your beach fire permit at Fire and Emergency NZ.

Please note while no fire permit is needed to light a fire in the open air in rural areas, there is a 365 day restricted fire season status for all coastal areas.
