Waitākere Ranges Greenways Plan

Closed for feedback

About the Waitākere Ranges Greenways Plan

​Waitakere Ranges Greenways Plan

The Waitakere Ranges Local Board is developing a greenways plan to help guide future improvements to the walking and cycling network in this area.

The draft plan identifies gaps in the network, opportunities for development, and priorities for investment. 

The plan covers the urban and near-urban areas of the Waitakere Ranges, including the eastern foothills.

The aim is to ensure that locals can easily and safely get around using pathways.

What we need your feedback on

The Waitakere Ranges Local Board would like to hear your views on:

  • the overall plan, including the objectives (see the consultation document: Part 1 – Introduction)
  • the maps of proposed walking and cycling routes (see the consultation document: Part 2 – Maps of proposed walking and cycling routes)
  • priorities (see the consultation document: Part 3 - Priorities).

When you can have your say

You can have your say from 21 April 2018 to 21 May 2018.

We will report the feedback we receive to the local board in June/July 2018. The local board will consider changes to the plan before it is adopted.

Thank you for your interest in the Waitākere Ranges Greenways Plan.

This consultation closed on 21 May 2018.

In total, we received 43 pieces of feedback on the plan, as well as 330 pieces of feedback on walking and cycling in the Waitākere Ranges through the Long Term Plan process.

Key themes from the feedback include:

  • path design
  • amenities
  • safety considerations around schools, on rural roads and for cyclists
  • regional park track closures
  • kauri dieback
  • environmental outcomes, like avoiding sensitive areas
  • maintenance of existing parks, paths and footpaths
  • feedback on proposed routes
  • funding for implementation.

The Waitākere Ranges Local Board will consider any changes to the Draft Greenways Plan in October 2018.
