Upper Trafalgar Street

Following the success of previous temporary pedestrianisation of Upper Trafalgar Street over the summers of 2017/18 and 2018/19, Nelson City Council is now seeking feedback on the proposals to prohibit motor vehicles in Upper Trafalgar Street 365 days per year, with some exemptions.

The proposal will support the aim for Nelson’s central city to be attractive to business, residents and visitors, with an exceptional mix of events and civic facilities.

We are working to build an environment that supports commerce, encourages inner city living and is a catalyst for private sector investment. The top of the South, Te Tau Ihu, needs a strong commercial centre to thrive. We want our city centre to enrich and build our local culture – the bustling meeting place for everyone who lives, works and visits here.

The Statement of Proposal outlines the pedestrian mall proposal and seeks feedback from the community on the proposal to prohibit motor vehicles from Upper Trafalgar Street.

Consultation opens 9am Monday 24 June 2019 and closes at 4pm on 24 July 2019.
