Access award for Tasman District Council
Published 11 December 2014
The Tasman District Council has today been recognised with a national award for its work improving public access to Tasman's rivers, lakes, mountains and coast.
New Zealand Walking Access Commission Chairman John Forbes said the award, presented at a council meeting in Richmond, recognised the priority the council gave to retaining and improving public access to the outdoors.
â€œLocal government is the trustee of the public interest in access and Tasman District Council has been an excellent example of a council that is actively engaging to manage access for the benefit of present and future generations.
â€œThis award recognises the council's work to ensure access to the region's rivers, beaches, lakes and mountains is retained and enhanced, through effective management of public access ways such as unformed legal roads and the creation of new walking trails and cycleways â€“ many of which will also bring economic benefits.â€
