Tuesday March 31 2020

Fire and Emergency New Zealand advises there is a change in fire season status from 8am on Wednesday 1 April.

Residents are reminded to always check the fire season status before you light a fire

Dial 111 to report an open air fire that looks dangerous.

If you have any questions about lighting fires, call Fire and Emergency New Zealand on 0800 656 628.

Water restrictions remain in place for Palmerston North

This includes Ashhurst, Bunnythorpe, Linton and Longburn.

Unattended hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems can only be used on alternate days between 7pm and 9pm. Even numbered houses can do this on even days, and odd numbered houses on odd days.

You can use a handheld hose at any time. However, we encourage residents to conserve water at every opportunity.
