Walking Access Commission welcomes review of legislation

Walking Access Commission welcomes review of legislation

The New Zealand Walking Access Commission Ara Hīkoi Aotearoa (NZWAC) is welcoming the mandatory review of its governing legislation, the Walking Access Act 2008.

When initially passing the Act in 2008, Parliament decided to undertake a review after ten years to assess if it remains fit for purpose and to identify any improvements. The review will be run by the Ministry for Primary Industries, and supported by a small independent panel chaired by Dr Hugh Logan.

Ric Cullinane, NZWAC Chief Executive, says the review is a great opportunity for people to have their say about public access to New Zealand’s outdoors.

"We encourage all those who have a passion for creating and protecting public access to the outdoors to get involved during the consultation phase in early 2019."

"This review offers the chance to reflect on ten years of the Commission’s work, and to ensure we are best placed to make the best of opportunities for public access in the coming years," says Ric Cullinane.
