Let's Go - New Plymouth District Council
Let’s Go is all about getting people in New Plymouth district to choose walking, riding or taking the bus over using cars for short trips.
It all began in June 2010 when New Plymouth District Council was one of two Councils (the other was Hastings) awarded a combined $7 million over two years to develop walking and cycling initiatives to encourage people out of their cars and onto our shared pathways and streetscapes. The project was branded 'Let's Go'.
From a community safety point of view, Let’s Go encompasses both infrastructure changes, such as pathway upgrades and road configuration changes to make cycling and walking safer, as well as attempts at changing people’s safety attitudes and behaviour through things like cyclist skills training at schools and media campaigns.
