Earlier research (Chapman and Weir 2008) suggested the following trip purposes might be useful for accessibility indicators in New Zealand:
· school education (separately for primary and secondary schooling)
· further education
· work (often measured as the choice of jobs available)
· doctor or primary health organisation
· supermarket (urban) or food-oriented convenience store (rural)
· petrol station
· bank/cash machine
· public transport.
This is a reasonably comprehensive list but for the purposes of neighbourhood accessibility the following could also be added:
· leisure centres and facilities
· sports facilities
· community centres/cultural and religious activities
· police stations/consumer protection agencies/legal advice
· population (as a proxy for friends and family).
