Council adopted its Walking and Cycling Strategy 2018 at its meeting on 25 October 2018.
The adoption of the Strategy is the culmination of an extensive review and community engagement process.
The Walking and Cycling Strategy provides:
- the framework and priorities for the development of a connected urban walking and cycling network;
- increasing participation in walking and cycling, both for recreation and active commuting; and
- for the development of rural cycling routes that enable our communities to leverage economic benefit from the growing cycle-tourism market.
Community engagement on the Draft Strategy indicated an overwhelming community support for walking and cycling in the Whangarei District. The engagement undertaken also enabled improvements to be made to the Strategy.
A summary of the submissions received, and the recommendations arising from those submissions is included in the links below.
The resulting Walking and Cycling Strategy will now be utilised to provide direction and priorities for Council.
The Strategy will also form the basis for securing additional funding to develop our district-wide walking and cycling infrastructure.
