Fire Hazards

If there's a property in your neighbourhood that you believe is a health or safety hazard due to an unkempt section, you might first try talking to the property owner.

If this does not resolve the problem, click here to report a concern that does not present a fire risk, such as hoarding and other nuisance issues including vermin control.

If your concern is a fire risk, you can let Fire and Emergency New Zealand know about your concern by completing the online form available at https://fireandemergency.nz/at-home/overgrown-sections/ or calling 0800336942.

Please note that Fire and Emergency is only able to take action to deal with genuine fire hazards, and not where the property is just unsightly or presents a health hazard.
