Beating the Bounds was attended by 4 Board members and a Councilor. We walked the 14km local board boundary and looked at many walking problems.

Accessible Street Package. This is not a good thing as it introduces footpath cycling and a speed limit of 15kph. This is unenforceable. All vehicles will crowd the curb cuts. Puts people off walking and its the trips not taken that should be counted. We will make a submission as ask to talk to it. It will be in GEs name.

Berm parking. Heidi is talking to Grant soon. We still support this action even if it is Proposal 8 of the Accessible Street Package
