Upper Selwyn Huts

General

This hut is located at the Springston South Reserve. The reserve that the hut is located on is Department of Conservation owned land, managed by Selwyn District Council.

Hut owners at the Springston South Reserve (also known as the Upper Selwyn Huts) own their hut but not the land on which the hut is located.  The land is reserve.  The Selwyn District Council administers the reserve and allows hut owners by way of licence to occupy the reserve with a ‘hut’.  The Council levies a licence fee which covers the operating cost of the water, sewerage and reserve maintenance.

Key to the Huts being able to occupy the reserve, is the Council being able to provide a wastewater system which has a valid resource consent to allow for the treatment and discharge of the community’s wastewater.
