Hi all, we are researching the value of footpaths in New Zealand, on behalf of the Road Controlling Authorities' Forum.
This survey is about how people use and value footpaths in New Zealand.
Please circulate the survey as widely as you are able, including to your friends, families, colleagues and any other groups you might be part of.
Press release, immediate
This week, Parliament’s Transport and Industrial Relations Select Committee will hear submissions on Jo Clendons petition asking for children up to 14 and accompanying adults to be allowed to cycle on footpaths.
Thanks to the Centre for Sustainable Cities for co-hosting and filming this great talk from Gil Penalosa.
We need to learn how to live well - recreate cities so they work for 8 and 80 year olds.
The general must prevail over the particular - benefit for the most people.
Thanks also to Wellington City Council for bringing Gil to Wellington.
Good on Wellington City Council - showing the way for more councils to follow. NZ Post vehicles not suitable anywhere. - Stuff June 27 2016
Keeping footpaths for pedestrians - that's the way to make a place more walkable.

The NZTA have passed the decision to allow Paxstar electirc tractors and trailer on the footpath to the Councils (Road Controling Authorities (RCA)).
Wellington Council has already said NO. New Plymouth has had a trail.
They have not flashing lights or warning noise as they drive along the footpaths.
What is next
