Access & Permits
Access and permits for Wellington's reserves.
Dogs are welcome on the Town Belt, but must be kept on leads. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs.
You can't drive off-road on the Town Belt. However, in some instances the Council grants licences for temporary vehicle access for specific purposes.

Parks collection and research permit
You need to get the Council's permission to collect material from parks and reserves. This is because some forms of research could badly affect natural resources or conflict with other users of the area.
