An inland port would ease vehicle congestion at the inner harbour and on roads through the city. This could be located west of the city at Matawhero or to the east at Sponge Bay. A new port road could be established along seaward side of Kaiti Hill.

Urban shared streets within the CBD should be explored in the spatial plan. These could be a good way to connect the CBD with the river walkway and help to introduce activity into the side streets adjacent to Gladstone Road. More street trees and amenities for passive pedestrian movements.

The spatial plan should look at ways to increase bus patronage through providing appropriate amenities and signage along existing routes, increasing visibility of the service to the public.

Investigate the option of connecting rail to Bay of Plenty via a northern line along the already established (but not completed) route. This could be in addition to, or instead of, a reconnection south to Hawkes Bay.

I would like to see all future projects roading projects led with walking and cycling (W&C) first - rather than building for cars - and all other projects (civil, cultural etc.) at least considering it. All business cases should have W&C thinking considered before funding is approved. Gisborne has the 2nd highest rates of obesity in NZ yet it is the perfect city for getting around by foot or bike. It would be great to do something radical to make it NZ's top city for cycling. This would improve health and the environment and ease congestion.

I am also supportive of investigating all options for reducing conflict between logging trucks, safety and lifestyle.
