Cycling and Walking Plans - Public Consultation

Public Consultation May 10

Closes: 11 May 2019 12:00am

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale invite residents to the Cycling and Walking Plans - Public Consultation at 6pm on 10 May, 2019 at the Byford Town Hall,  9 Clifton Street, Byford.

Walking and cycling are critical for the future health and economic vitality of cities and regions. The Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale is developing a Cycle and Walking Plan that integrates a wide set of analysis to formulate a vision for walking and cycling within the Shire.

The plan sets out that broad vision, along with an interim and long-term aspirational walking and cycling network for the Shire. 

It also provides an implementation program for individual projects that will support the realisation of the plan’s vision and objectives.

PRINCIPLES:

  • Complete key missing links;
  • Avoid duplication – particularly in the case of complimentary infrastructure projects;
  • Ensure works by others (including urban development and road construction) contribute to the development of the network; and
  • Focus on local improvements very close to major trip attractors and generators (schools, town centres, employment hubs and key tourism/activity nodes).
