Out and About – On Tracks
Nelson City Council’s Parks and Reserves Off Road Tracks Strategy
In October 2015 the Nelson City Council adopted its ‘Out and About’ – Active Travel and Pathway-based Recreation Policy, covering physical activity on roads, footpaths and pathways either for travel or recreation purposes. During the Policy’s development it became evident there was a need to develop a complementary but separate strategy specifically for track-based recreation. In December 2016 the ‘Out and About – On Tracks’ Strategy was adopted and in conjunction with the ‘Out and About’– Active Travel and Pathway-based Recreation Plan was to guide Council provision.
The Out and About On Tracks Strategy 2016 has now been reviewed. The purpose of this second iteration (the On Tracks Strategy 2022) is to provide clear direction for the Nelson City Council, its partners, stakeholders and the community with regards to the planning and provision of front country off-road recreation within the Nelson City boundaries over the next six years for continued use and enjoyment by residents and visitors. The 2022 Strategy’s implementation plan is a living document and is expected to change to take advantage of strategic opportunities that will no doubt emerge.
‘Out and About – On Tracks’ is that strategy, and should be read in conjunction with ‘Out and About’– Active Travel and Pathway-based Recreation Policy.
