Part 2 Division 4 Section 22
22   Care to be taken
(1)  In the exercise of a function under this Division, a person authorised to enter premises must do as little damage as possible. The council must provide, if necessary, other means of access in place of any taken away or interrupted by a person authorised by it.
(2)  As far as practicable, entry on to fenced land is to be made through an existing opening in the enclosing fence. If entry by that means is not practicable, a new opening may be made in the enclosing fence, but the fence is to be fully restored when the need for entry ceases.
(3)  If, in the exercise of a function under this Division, any pit, trench, hole or bore is made, the council must, if the proprietor or manager of the premises so requires:
(a)  fence it and keep it securely fenced so long as it remains open or not sufficiently sloped down, and
(b)  without unnecessary delay, fill it up or level it or sufficiently slope it down.
