The exemptions would be access at all times for emergency vehicles and access during specified hours, for example 07:00am - 09:00am for delivery vehicles.

The purpose of the proposed closure would be to create an inviting, pedestrian- friendly space for Nelsonians and visitors to enjoy.  Restaurants will be invited to extend their dining areas.

The closure would also be used to trial and test the feasibility of declaring Upper Trafalgar Street a pedestrian mall for four months every summer.

The proposed closure would be effected under Section 342 and Schedule 10 clause 11(d) of the Local Government Act 1974.
