We Say/You Say: Outdoor spaces

The Team Reporter from Kapi-Mana News

Hi neighbours,

What would you like to see in your local council's outdoor space policy?

More concerts, festivals and markets are on the cards for Wellington City if a new plan is approved by council.

The council is reviewing its policies for trading and events in public spaces, making some areas more accessible while placing heavier regulations in others.

26 parks, reserves and carparks are being explored to allow commercial trading, street vendors, tourist activities and recreational equipment to operate.

Commercial activities that might degrade public land, like commercial tours and fitness classes may be charged a licensing fee to cover administration, repairs and maintenance.

A limit on dog walkers and a reduction of footpath signage would be a part of the council's plan to scrap two pieces of existing policy.

Would you support the changes if your local council implemented them? Let us know in the comments below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Kapi-Mana News.
