Safe City Strategy

Residents want Palmerston North to be the safest city in New Zealand. In support of this, the Council wants to make Palmerston North a World Health Organisation International Safe Community. Find out how we plan to do it.

To achieve these goals, individuals, organisations ad communities have to work together. That is why the Council supports partnerships like the Safety Advisory Board. We also prioritise creation of neighbourhoods and public places that are well used. We want people to feel safe day and night whether they be pedestrians, cyclists or motorists.

Council adopted the Safe City Strategy in 2012.
