It would be much appreciated if you could spread the word in your organisation about the above, as follows:
Wellington City Council (WCC) have just launched a residents’ and users’ survey to gauge feedback from those who would be impacted by, use, or are interested in a new access to Trelissick Park from Wadestown. This is from Oban Street, using a right-of-way between two houses. This would lead to a track down to a new footbridge across Kaiwharawhara Stream.
For more than three decades, local community groups have advocated for this access, which expands walking opportunities from surrounding suburbs and within the Park. The footbridge would open up new areas for pest control and native bush restoration.
WCC approval of the proposal is the next step, subject to the outcome of the survey.
So far, there are very few WCC resources committed to the proposal, but Park supporters are determined to make this happen. We have pledged to fund the footbridge from community donations.
A WCC decision is due before Christmas. For more information and history, go to the document on the ‘Current Issues’ page of www.trelissickpark.org.nz. This also addresses the issues raised in responses to a 2016 survey. We strongly urge you to participate in the survey. The following link will remain open until 29 October.
