More than 2250 responses to the Napier Speed Limit Bylaw Review have been received - but we could always do with more.
Safety is the key reason Napier City Council is thinking of changing the legal speed limit on some city roads.
NCC is legally required to review its Speed Limit Bylaw periodically. The online survey, part of the first, informal stage of consultation, closes next Wednesday, 30 August.
The survey asks for feedback on 17 proposed changes, and there is an opportunity to provide feedback on other roads at the end of the survey.
As Robin Malley, Team Leader Transportation, says, NCC is concerned enough about these particular roads, or sections of road, to want to change the limits, and needs to know if the community agrees.
Because this bylaw is only reviewed every few years, it is important as many people as possible have their say on roads they use.
The proposed changes include: reducing the speed 300m either side of a school entrance during school terms at drop off and pick times, and on part of Marine Parade, to 30 km/h; reducing the speed on Napier Hill to 40 km/h; and dropping the limit on the westernmost section of Prebensen Drive, from 100 km/h, to 80 km/h.
Following the closure of the survey, and a report to Council, if the existing bylaw is to be amended a formal consultation process will begin. This will give the community an opportunity to complete a formal submission.
The survey is accompanied by a StoryMap of the proposed changes. This is best viewed on a PC, laptop or tablet.
Anyone with limited internet access is able to call in at the Napier City Council Customer Service Centre, on Hastings Street, or either Napier or Taradale Library, and ask for assistance.
