Have your say on the future of public access to the outdoors
The Walking Access Act is under review. Have your say to see more consideration for four wheel drive access.
New Zealanders with an interest in the outdoors are being invited to have their say on legislation that helps them access nature throughout the country.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is reviewing the Walking Access Act 2008 and has begun calling for public feedback.
“The Act aims to provide free, certain, enduring and practical access to the outdoors for all sorts of activities, not just walking,” Ms Denny says.
“The review is looking at whether the Act is fit for the future, and what improvements are needed.
“We’re keen to hear from individuals, organisations and groups with an interest in enjoying the outdoors.
“This includes everything from walking and bike riding to swimming and fishing, connecting with Māori sites, outdoor education, hunting or even four-wheel driving.”
