Christchurch mini-parks created on Carfree Day

World Carfree Day is an annual celebration of how community life improves when freed from the noise, stress and pollution of cars. Every September 22, people from around the world get together in the streets and neighbourhoods to celebrate World Carfree Day and to remind the world that we don't have to accept domination by cars..

Submission on Hereford slow street proposal

We congratulate the Council on this exciting initiative to create a more pedestrian friendly inner city environment.  We especially support the idea of this being a “prototype streetscape design for ‘slow streets’ which can be used for busier traffic links in the central city”.  We look forward to seeing the spread of slow streets so enhancing the social and economic vibrancy of the inner city.

We support the concept of the Hereford Street Plan in general.  Please keep us informed about  future consultation about this project.
