Road stopping - a Wellington submission example and Environment Court decision

We have become concerned at the number of legal but unformed roads that have been stopped and sold. This limits the future choices and potential uses for the land. Unformed legal road is often used by pedestrians for accessways or potentially could be used as such.

Walkability workshop 6 April - Community Street Review report

Living Streets Aotearoa ran a Walkability workshop on 6 April 2013 to train participants in the use of Community Street Reviews. The short route selected was close to the meeting venue and traversed a residential and commercial area. This group of pedestrian advocates quickly assessed the route and came up with a range of improvements that could be made to create a more walkable environment. Read the Community Street Review report here.

Submission on Wellington City Council Annual Plan 2013

This is our submission on the 2013 Draft Annual Plan for Wellington City Council. Our submission covered the lack of priority and projects for pedestrians, supported the Miramar development to provide better pedestrian facilities, and supported the further development of 'the Promenade' waterfront walk from the railway station to Kumutoto to improve pedestrian access.
