What do you think of stricter freedom camping rules?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

Stuart Nash was in Northland late last week to announced proposed stricter rules for freedom camping - including banning non-self-contained vehicles or making them park in campgrounds only, fines increasing from $200 to $1000, and requirements on rental companies to collect fines. Nash says the rules are about making sure people don't toilet in inappropriate places. What do you think of the proposed new rules? Have you ever been impacted by freedom campers?
