Driving recreational vehicles
You need a permit to use recreational vehicles:
- in a residential area
- in the urban growth area on land under 1 acre (4000 square metres)
- within 200 metres of a neighbouring house
A permit is also required if a recreational vehicle or model vehicle is used within 200 metres of land used for residential purposes and the land is owned or occupied by a tenant or someone other than the owner of the land on which the recreation vehicle is to be used.
Recreational vehicles include motorbikes and mini bikes.
Applying for a RV permit
- complete a Permit Application Recreational Vehicle 2019 (download below)
- return the document to any of our Customer and Library Service Centres
- pay the relevant fee
When we receive your application, we will work out if you instead need to apply for a planning permit.
We will inspect your property and ask your neighbours if they object to use of the recreational vehicle. If a permit is issued conditions will apply.
Your permit needs to be renewed annually.
