The expected arrival of the Lime e-scooters to Dunedin continues to divide opinion.

So far just over 100 responses to a survey have been received and the majority were against the scooters being allowed on footpaths.

Survey authors Jim and Beth Moffat said they were motivated to conduct the survey because they were concerned residents had not been consulted on whether e-scooters should be introduced.

Of the 101 responses received, 62 were against e-scooters on footpaths, 32 favoured the scooters and seven people did not know.

The Moffats believed the city council should open the issue for formal consultation.
