We think a shared path around the coast from North Bay (Shelly Bay) to Scorching Bay could be great for Wellington.
The coast includes nesting and breeding areas for little blue penguins and white-fronted terns, as well as rare plant species.
The harbour-side lane of Massey Road will become a safe area where people can enjoy a walk or leisurely bike ride along the coast.
The 3km road from Shelly Bay to Scorching Bay will be one-lane and one-way only for motorised traffic.
Car drivers will be able to cross the shared path at various points to reach swimming, fishing, diving and boating spots, as well as parking for Massey Memorial and Point Halswell.
