Indeed you would. A senior council planner from the Nelson City council is being ‘dealt with internally‘, after he or she chose to cycle to a building site to inspect a resource consent application rather than drive. Apparently cycling was ‘not appropriate’.
Interestingly the Nelson Mail article reports that the time wasting journey was probably about 12 minutes as a fast bike ride but the cyclist in question probably went slower than that. If Nelsonians really think 12 minutes (or slightly more) is a long travel journey and waste of time they might want to keep very quiet before they have too many Aucklanders, Wellingtonians and Cantabrians racing to join them in their hamlet.
