The New Zealand Walking Access Commission launched the website www.bothsidesofthefence.org.nz at Northland School on November 2. The resource was designed for 8- to 13-year-old school pupils and their teachers to teach responsible land access behaviour. Commission chief executive Mark Neeson said scenarios were pres- ented to help reconnect urban and rural New Zealand by improving mutual understanding of the value of access and the realities of rural life. The website also has links to the commission s walking access maps, which detail real and paper roads, and other areas walkers are able to use. One of the site s creators, David Copeland, said that as a child he and his friends used to play on a local hill that was known to be peppered with disused mine shafts. We knew, and our parents made it very clear that, if we went up to Arnot s Hill, we had to tell somebody, and there were parts of Arnot s Hill that we weren t allowed to go to. That kind of local knowledge has been included in the website, he said.
