When I were a child I lived in cardboard box on side of t'road and ate gravel for breakfast... I'd have given anything to have lived in a bach!

It depends on the status of the land. Selwyn Hutts in Canterbury for example, you cannot you can't as you have a licence to occupy rather than owning the land freehold. (There was talk of this being changed for that area at one time, but I don't know if was). But if your land is freehold there you can probably do what you like with it as long as you can get building permission and there are no covenants preventing you.

Your local by laws is a good place to start. As Kai says, it depends on a number of things.
If it's classified as residential, no problems, but potential for many variables. I know you cannot live permanently in a caravan park unless it's a private one, but check with your council.
There may be some times you could, such as if you are building else where, but you may have to move out for a few weeks.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

To my knowledge there is nothing to stop one from living in or renting a bach, Selwyn Hutts are an exception to most areas of NZ. Some areas in National parks you can live there, but when one passes on the Bach comes down.:confused::confused:

Isn't it also like permanent V. removable structures on private property?

If its tied down to piles its classed as permanent and therefore needing all the regulatory approvals for the district, but if its not tied onto a pile then its class as a temp dwelling which can be moved and legally no one should be in there for any longer than a temporary period, but its up to the neighbours to make a complaint if someone does reside in the dwelling longer.

10 months for temp dwellg. or 3 seasons for a tent/gazebo/teepee, last time i looked.
Cant remember the the wording, but whether it had foundation or not, it could be classed as temporary but diffrent from movable. Gah. Ill look it up again. Dbh.govt.nz should get you in the right direction.

I have no doubt that you are right, however being on an extended extension for our CC, and questioning why we were being ''hounded'' by council to get our final approval when surrounding neighbours had been living for years in converted barns, re-located dwellings that have addition after addition added on, and other odd dwellings that don't met the regs, our inspector who re-issued our extension said ''unless neighbours complain, we don't inspect what is happening down every driveway nor every garage conversion. When a neighbour complains, its a pain in the a..e for us."

So keep in good with your neighbours and basically build what you like and live in it. As long as you are good with your neighbours (at least in our district council area).
