Table of Contents Walkways


Local government sometimes promotes walkways, particularly in blocks longer than 200 metres. Pedestrian desire lines to schools, beaches, parks, commercial areas etc. are checked against the street layout, and walkways are required where necessary. Walkways are shown as “road” on the subdivision plan.  Where walkways are dedicated as "road" on a plan of subdivision, then the Ministry is responsible for maintenance.  However, as it is usually local government who commits to walkways, it’s not unreasonable to ask them to take care of the maintenance, or to create the walkways as parks.
