Review of the Walking Access Act 2008 – Public Meeting Invitation
By Catriona McBean - Tue 28 May 2019 3:52pm

As many of you are likely aware, the Ministry for Primary Industries is reviewing the Walking Access Act 2008.

We want to hear from you and people in your networks interested in access to the outdoors, so we get the best possible results from the review.  The Act is about increasing free access to tracks, trails and other areas for all sorts of recreation associated with walking – biking, horse riding, four wheel driving, access by Māori to sites of significance, surfing, hunting and fishing. Tracks, trails or areas can be in, close to or far from towns and cities.

One way that you or people in your networks can contribute feedback to this review is by attending one of the three public meetings.  Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings to find out more about the review, ask questions and share their views.  Feedback will be captured and analysed along with the written feedback we receive.
