The Kapiti Coast could soon become one of the world's longest nude beaches.
Kapiti Mayor Jenny Rowan and 10 councillors unanimously supported the stance to be included in the draft bylaw. A staff report on the issue said naked sunbathing or swimming on a beach was not considered offensive behaviour in modern society.

"In this age of greater freedom of expression and perhaps greater tolerance to nakedness, bylaws restricting the rights of law-abiding naturists are vulnerable on the basis that they breach ... the Bill of Rights Act," the report said.

Case law quoted in the report stated that "merely being naked on a beach does not render a person liable to causing an offence".
