Lets work together to look after our spaces and places; report anti-social behaviour

Published 27 Mar 2023

To keep our Tararua district beautiful, let’s work together to report anti-social behaviour. Complaints about illegal dumping of rubbish on public property, vandalism, and generally unacceptable behaviour are increasing in our district. These are community issues that are costing us all a lot of money.

Replacing damaged facilities is expensive, and a lot of time is spent on admin, reporting, follow-up with the public and contractors, and project planning. The costs all mount up and it takes staff away from other priority areas.
Council is investigating security measures in areas where incidents have been reported.
Let’s stop this sort of behaviour together

Please call the Police immediately on 111 if you observe any of this taking place. Details such as car registrations, descriptions of individuals and photographs (always take care of your personal safety first) are valuable evidence that can be used to trace and prosecute/fine offenders.

Vandalised public facilities or rubbish dumping can be reported to Council with the Antenno App or by calling our friendly customer services team at 06 374 4080 (North) and 06 376 0110 (South) - 24 hours - 7 days a week.
