How to create a new walkway
Herenga ā Nuku welcomes approaches from landholders wishing to create public access over their land.
Take the first step – talk to us
Your regional field advisor will answer your questions and help as you decide the best legal mechanism, identify a route, survey the route and complete the details needed to legalise access.
The walkway easement instrument (Jan 2019) is used to legalise access under the Walking Access Act 2008. It is kept simple as the legislation contains all the rules that apply. We will help you complete the necessary details.
