Creating a community which is connected, mobile, healthy and happy are key strategic objectives in our Council Plan 2017 – 2021.

Improved connectivity and safety of the path network throughout the Shire will not only increase accessibility for those with disabilities, but will facilitate pedestrian movement including walking, cycling and other nonvehicular modes of transport.

We encourage the community to take the time to review this draft strategy to improve our pedestrian networks across the peninsula. 

The strategy will also be used as basis to guide future capital works expenditure on pathways and pedestrian infrastructure projects.
