The City of Kwinana is seeking feedback from the community on its new Bike and Walk Plan, which will be open for public comment until Friday, 2 November 2018.
The plan aims to foster place making throughout the City as well as improve the health and wellbeing of local residents by encouraging walking or cycling as a preferred mode of transport for localized trips.
Mayor Carol Adams said the purpose of the Bike and Walk Plan was to identify a safe network of cycle routes and walking paths that were convenient for people of all ages and abilities to ride or walk to local destinations such as schools, shops, parks, bushland, bus stops and train stations.
“The Plan promotes communities where cycling and walking are the preferred choices for short trips and everyone has the opportunity to choose a healthy lifestyle,” she said.
“The City is looking for comments from the community in relation to whether the proposed cycle and walking routes shown in the draft Bike and Walk Plan are situated in the most convenient locations, whether the Plan will make it easier for residents to cycle or walk to local destinations in their area; and if the best routes have been selected or can the proposed routes be improved to encourage and support community members travelling by foot or bike.”
The draft Plan is available for inspection at the City of Kwinana Administration Offices during office hours until COB Friday, 2 November 2018. The draft Plan is also available on the public notices section of the City of Kwinana website.
Submissions on the draft Plan may be made in writing and lodged on, or before, 2 November 2018. Submissions may be posted to City of Kwinana, PO Box 21, Kwinana WA 6966 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
