The owner of "unauthorised structures" found in sand dunes in Pouto has two weeks to claim them.

Department of Conservation staff removed the shower room, toilet and shelter which were found close to a dune lake at Roundhill adjacent to Rototuna Forest.

Chairs, water containers and non-native plants were also removed.

The materials from the structures are being held at the Kauri Coast Area office and if they are not claimed within two weeks will be disposed of.

It is an offence under the Conservation Act 1987 section 39, to erect or place structures on public conservation land and people responsible could be liable for prosecution in this case.

DOC staff say there will be no prosecutions for this structure.

Anyone considering carrying out activities on conservation land should contact DOC.
