Nelson draft Regional Land Transport Strategy being debated

The draft Regional Land Transport Strategy for Nelson city is being debated with public meetings on Monday October 20 at the Trafalgar Pavilion, Trafalgar Park at 6pm and Tuesday, October 28 at 1pm at the Stoke Memorial Hall. Regional transport committee chairman Cr Derek Shaw said the meetings were an opportunity for people to hear what was proposed, the reasons for it and to ask any questions. The main focus of the draft strategy is to offer more transport choices, walking and cycling options, transport demand management and increased bus services, with the aim of deferring the decision on any additional road capacity for at least five years.
A blog has been created and it will be interesting to see what activity it gets. Summaries and copies of the full strategy are available at the city council office, public libraries and online. Submissions are invited until 4pm Friday November 14.
