Reefton Campground Accommodation Project

Buller District Council invites public feedback on a proposed development of six new cabins at the Reefton Motor Camp.

Buller District Council invites public feedback on a proposed development at the Reefton Motor Camp, on part of the Reefton Recreation Reserve located between Bridge Street and Ross Street, Reefton. A plan showing the site of the proposed development is included below. 

Proposal 

Council proposes to install six new cabins on the site, comprising four double units and two single accessible units. Additionally, 10 car parks will be constructed on the site. The cabins may be prefabricated off-site and later transported to the site, where they will be connected to essential services such as power, drainage, and plumbing.

  • The purpose of this proposal is to provide long-term or temporary accommodation for workers and/or Reefton visitors.
  • Council proposes to set aside the site for the purposes of the camping ground, and as a relocatable home park (as defined in the Camping-Grounds Regulations 1985).
  • No financial burden is anticipated on Council or Ratepayers for this project.

The proposed cabin designs can be found here Proposed Reefton Campground Cabin Construction Design 

Buller District Council values community input.
