This is how we're responding in Selwyn.

Urban design and public transport

One way we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a key contributor to climate change, is to use public transport.

Environment Canterbury provides public transport services for Greater Christchurch. The region is transitioning to a zero-emissions fleet.

Selwyn District Council’s transport strategies focus on reducing carbon emissions through provision of charging stations for electric vehicles, developing and maintaining cycling and walking tracks to support safe active transport and encouraging public transport.

The Greater Christchurch partnership is looking at how the city needs to evolve. Greater Christchurch 2050 will describe the kind of place we want for our future generations, and the actions we need to take over the next 30 years to make it happen. This work will culminate in a plan that is achievable for our region.

This includes investigating mass rapid transport options.
