Whether you walk, ride, scoot or skate, the City of Melville is encouraging the community to share their walking and riding experiences in and around Melville to help shape its 10 year Walk and Ride Plan.
City of Melville Mayor the Hon. George Gear JP said the City wanted to provide more opportunities for active transport and encourage people to get around in a safe and connected way now and into the future.
“We understand that by providing and advocating for a more connected City that embraces and provides more opportunities for walking and riding, our community is able to enjoy a healthy lifestyle and the great outdoors while travelling safely from A to B.” Mayor George Gear said.
“Using our interactive map which includes the State Governments proposed long term cycle network, we want our community to show us where they frequently walk or ride and pinpoint any issues they have experienced.
“Community feedback and a comprehensive assessment of current walking and riding facilities in the City will help inform our future projects and will contain best practise, international measures to reduce or remove barriers for our community to use active transport.
“Once completed, our Walk and Ride Plan aims to have an interconnected and well-maintained walking and cycling network that people of all abilities feel comfortable and safe using every day, while also aligning with State Government plans, our local planning policies and visioning for our community.”
The public are encouraged to have their say and complete an online survey and use the interactive map to pin point where they walk or ride around Melville, and any areas they have experienced issues or barriers to using active transport.
Engagement is open now and closes Sunday, 12 December 2021.
