Dispute over public access through forest on Crown-owned land

Good on Richard Murcott, I don’t know if he is a member here or not.

It’s a tough one. As at least one of the roads mentioned is a paper road we should have access to that road at least, however that access is often abused by other parties like trail bike riders and dumpers.

Access to 4 wheeled vehicles was recently blocked for Leslie Road – Cecil Road in the central Waikato due to dumpers totally trashing the place. There’s some pics of the mess they left in the replies on that page.

Opitonui Road – Wade Road in the Coromandel passes through private forestry but has a public easement so it’s supposed to be open for public access every Sunday, but I’ve tried 3 times to go through it and it’s never been open.
