Accessible Nelson

We want people who live, work or study in Nelson to have their say on plans for a more accessible Nelson.

Deadline: Thursday 28 April at 23:59

What is Accessible Nelson?

The Accessible Nelson project is one of eight projects that the Nelson Town Deal board is overseeing as part of a ten year plan for a brighter Nelson.

The project is about improving traffic flow, creating a quality environment including at key gateway routes, and introducing better walking and cycling opportunities for sustainable transport.

The aim is to make these routes pedestrian and cycle-friendly as well as more attractive for all.
