From midnight tonight a Stratford fire ban will be in place. This means that permits are required for all open-air fires.

Residents who need a permit should contact Stratford District Council on (06) 765 6099.

There is no charge for a fire permit. The full cost of extinguishing a fire without a permit, or an out-of- control permitted fire will be charged to the property owner.

South Taranaki and North Taranaki already have fire restrictions in place.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
