Walking Strategy

A goal of the Trust since its inception has been to facilitate recreational walking on Banks Peninsula and associated affordable camping. The vision is to connect and support the communities of Banks Peninsula and to provide a recreational resource that encourages understanding and support for the environment.

The Trust has developed a draft walking and cycling strategy strategy to guide its decision making. In doing so it is seeking to work with community groups, landowners and government agencies to support and improve the existing network of walkways and cycle trails  and then develop new routes in support of the Christchurch City Council’s Public Open Space Strategy.
