Funding available to enhance outdoor access

The New Zealand Walking Access Commission is now accepting applications for the third round of its 2014-2015 Enhanced Access Fund programme. The fund supports projects that provide free, certain, enduring and practical outdoor access for the public.

Commission Chief Executive Mark Neeson said a total of $76,000 was available across four funding rounds this financial year, with a maximum of $25,000 available to any one project.

“Our highest priority will be initiatives that obtain new access and projects such as the installation of signs that inform the public about access opportunities.â€
