Meetings and events

There will be a meeting in late February 2014 to discuss what practical measures can be included in the Wellington City annual plan to provide improvements for pedestrians. Watch this space for more details.

Want to get more involved in walking and advocating for our slice of the transport pie in Wellington? Living Streets Wellington hold a meeting every month with our next one on 4th February 2014. Contact wellington(a)livingstreets.org.nz for more details and to come along - all members welcome.

Living Streets Wellington held a series of meetings and events throughout 2011, 2012 and 2013, they are timed and designed to allow us to address topical issues. We have looked at pedestrian accidents on footpaths and footpath design guidelines; designing liveable spaces that foster community resilience; and, the impact of parking on space allocation and its implications for pedestrians. If you want to know more about these meetings contact wellington(at)livingstreets.org.nz.

The Living Streets community street review workshop was held on 6 April 2013. We walked a short route through Mt Victoria to Tory St identifying issues from a pedestrian perspective. We quickly identified a number of improvements that could be made along the route we walked and will be sharing these with the WCC. If you are interested in learning how to do community street reviews please contact wellington[a]livingstreets.org.nz

We look forward to seeing you at a future event.

Recent submissions

Click on Submissions at the bottom of this page to read our submissions.

Some of our latest submissions have been on lowering the speed limits on busy pedestrian streets, and of course on the Basin Bridge proposal. Why do all the footpaths have to become 'shared paths'? Is that an improvement in pedestrian level of service? Is this better for the thousands of school children who walk through this area? Support us at the Board of Inquiry hearings - Living Streets is currently scheduled for 14 March.
