Update re Taipo access

I just contacted Ted Brennan at Hokitika DoC for an update on the Taipo access trial () He says the trial was successful, and as planned there is no lock on the gate at present. It is up to the Fitzgeralds to apply for a lock in the future (they haven't done so yet) and that any restrictions would be only over the winter as the numbers of recreationalists over summer should provide adequate protection against illegal activities during that time.

Check the site or DoC at the start of next season to get an update on access arrangements at that time.
