Active Transport Strategy

  • Last updatedFebruary 2023

Walking, wheeling and cycling aren’t just healthier ways to get around, they make our community safer and reduce our impact on the environment. While we’ve been making a lot of pedestrian safety upgrades recently, an Active Transport Strategy would help us improve pedestrian and cycling infrastructure throughout the whole Borough.

An Active Transport Strategy will help Council:

  • ensure key destinations are connected by cycling and pedestrian networks
  • upgrade infrastructure in a planned way, rather than with one-off improvements
  • understand and remove barriers to walking, wheeling and cycling in the Borough
  • improve the safety and accessibility of our pedestrian and cycling networks.

Community input will help us identify key issues and priorities for our pedestrian and cycling network. Whether you have a footpath gap you want to share with us or a great idea to encourage cycling, wheeling and walking, we want to hear your ideas. 

At the February 2023 Ordinary Meeting, Council formally endorsed the draft Active Transport Strategy and requested the CEO to finalise the graphic design layout of the Strategy prior to placing it on public exhibition, inviting submissions for a period of 28 days.
