Feedback closes 11.59pm, 14 January 2022

Council is committed to improving pedestrian needs by investing in infrastructure and undertaking projects that will improve pedestrian access. One of the main aims of Council's draft Walking Strategy is to be the guiding document for the delivery of walking infrastructure and ensure that walking is promoted whenever an opportunity arises.

Council will promote and facilitate the benefits of walking as the preferred mode of transport. Walking is recognised as having many significant benefits, including:

  • individual and community health and fitness
  • reduced carbon footprint
  • traffic management and parking demand reduction
  • community cohesion
  • local business support
  • increased local centre vibrancy

A number of further policies will be developed once Council adopts the Walking Strategy. Walking project development, including project-specific community consultation, will be undertaken to address the walking infrastructure investment “hot spots” identified in the Walking Action Plan using the preferred infrastructure treatments identified in the Walking Strategy. The aim of these actions is to provide policy guidance that addresses some of the underlying issues effecting walking safety and amenity as well as improve walking connections and access to local village centres and other community facilities such as schools and parks.

Council is seeking feedback on the locations and walking infrastructure identified in its priority plan. Community feedback is important to ensure the final document captures local sentiment and expectations around walking. Feedback on the impact that the draft recommendations may have on other road users, particularly cyclists is also sought. The final Strategy will take into consideration the feedback received before being presented to Council for adoption in early 2022, alongside a summary of the consultation outcomes.

An online information session was held 24 November 2021, a recording of the session can be viewed here. Questions raised during the session will be added to FAQs section on this page.
