This is the report from the joint Wellington Railway Station Community Street Review November 2015. This street review was undertaken by Living Streets Aotearoa Wellington members and the Wellington City Council Accessibility Advisory Group.

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.
Open Streets celebrate public space and let the community be active out on their street, with lots of fun activities to take part in including street art, dancing and music, playing games on the street, and making your own space to hang out in.
Living Streets partnering with Greater Wellington regional council will open up Dixon and lower Cuba Streets to community activity - closed for cars. More information email email@example.com
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.

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.
