Age of Submissions:
Recreational Access to the Outdoors
Geoff Chapple, writing in Te Araroa, the newsletter of Te Araroa Trust, called 2004 'the year of access'. 'The Age of Submissions' outlined eight access topics that had each involved consultations and submissions. In September 2004, all but one of these eight access topics were still in progress.
