Submission writing is one of our most effective ways to influence policy decisions to benefit pedestrians - that is everyone - and is one of the most important ways of shaping your community.
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.
Making submissions on strategies, plans and proposals is one of the most important ways of shaping your community.
Decision makers feel more accountable when they realise that people care about what they're doing, and are prepared to tell them what they think. The more people who support or oppose a plan, the harder it is for Councillors and others to ignore their views.
Here are some resources to help you write and present effective submissions. Browse through and find which ones will help you.
