A plan that would see the Henderson-Massey Local Board area fully connected through walking and cycling paths has opened for consultation today.
The draft Henderson-Massey Connections Plan will connect neighbourhoods to key destinations including public transport hubs, schools, local shops, libraries and parks in a bid to help more people ditch the car and embrace walking and cycling where possible.
Henderson-Massey Local Board Chair Shane Henderson says the Plan will be a very important tool in prioritising routes for development.
“We currently have the draft Plan which we think is a good start, but we really want to hear from the community about if there are alternative routes we should be looking at, which paths and trails are popular, and where we should be prioritising our investment in walking and cycling in our area.
“Making it easier to get people out of their cars would improve the health of our community and environment, and make it a more social, enjoyable place to live and work.
“So I really hope people take the time to look at the draft Plan and let us know what we have got right and what we need to improve on.
“Together we can make Henderson-Massey an even better place to live, and this plan will play a vital role in helping us to achieve that aim.”
Consultation on the plan is open now until 14 April.
