Congratulations on your election!
Local Government is very important in shaping our local environment for decades to come. You can help or hurt walking by your decisions. Let’s make your place better for walking!
Dear fellow pedestrians,
Life as we have known it has changed forever. We have long shared our footpaths with the odd cyclist or skateboarder, but the appearance and proliferation of e-scooter machines is a whole new thing.
This new era requires that we change fundamentally our approach to getting around on two legs, and demands a hugely elevated sense of awareness and safety. Care needs to be taken in every area and with almost every step.

Great Harbour Way Trustee and former Mayor Celia Wade-Brown is delighted the Government will be advancing the missing link in the Great Harbour Way.
“The Great Harbour Way, Te Aranui o Pōneke, is an amazing scenic opportunity for locals and tourists alike, for both recreation and commuting.” says Ms Celia Wade-Brown.
“Fixing the gap between Ngauranga and Petone will also seamlessly connect the capital to the Remutaka Trail. Both Hutt and Wellington City Councils are working on their parts, New Zealand Transport Agency must do their section.”
