Petition Results & Pathway Update

The petition in support of our project to create a public pathway between Upper Moutere village and the Community Centre has now closed - and we have achieved a solid 609 signatures by individuals in support of the project. We would like to thank all who have signed the petition and those who helped distributing the leaflets.

The results from our survey which called for residents to tell us what they see as most important for the pathway are also available and have been compiled in this article.

We have also received some feedback from our (newly elected) ward councillors Anne Turley, Dean McNamara and Tim King as well as Motueka councillor David Ogilvie who have expressed their support for the project. We are looking forward to working more closely with our councillors and TDC departments.

Meanwhile, we are continuing negotiations with individual landowners along possible routes for the pathway. While we still do not have a complete connection between the two locations, our strategy is to secure individual sections of land for public access along any of the possible routes as these become available - with a view to create a continuous corridor in the future.
