Greenways, property developers and the use of incentives
Greenways are lines of open space connecting people to the outdoors, species to habitats, and communities to one another. They are increasingly popular across Auckland. Auckland Council has developed Local Board Greenway Plans to encourage greenway development. The plans aim to mitigate the adverse effects of suburban development that prevent connectivity. They also encourage Aucklanders to use active transport, offering multiple health and wellbeing benefits.
Greenways plans often seek to connect up across different types of landholding, including private land. So we must look beyond public spaces and entire landscapes to implement them.
Holly Stevens’ research highlights incentives most likely to encourage Auckland’s private property developers to allow public access through their land for greenway development.
