Walking & Cycling Strategy

Walking and cycling provides social, environmental, economic and health benefits that are well understood, and there is continuing growth in investment and support for developing walking and cycling at a local, regional and national level.

The Walking and Cycling Strategy establishes a new set of visions and goals for walking and cycling within the Manawatū District over the next 10 years. The Strategy will assist Council in co-ordinating and prioritising the many requests for footpaths and cycleways received by the community, and enable a coordinated approach to delivering wider initiatives that will encourage people to travel by foot or by bike more often.
