Walking & Cycling Strategy

Man cycling and woman walking

Our Walking and Cycling Strategy 2012 - 2022 (3.2 MB) is a plan to get more people walking and cycling.

The aims include:

  • developing a walking and cycling culture including increasing the number of people who walk and cycle particularly for show trips (under two kilometers walk and five kilometers ride)
  • prioritising walking and cycling in planning and decision-making processes across Council 
  • promoting walking and cycling as easy, healthy, inexpensive and enjoyable ways to travel that promote social inclusion

The strategy has an Implementation Plan consisting of 13 action packages.

The strategy includes 15 new actions as well as an updated map showing proposed walking and cycling routes and links.

The strategy recommends that improvements to infrastructure be supported by programs to help people to walk and cycle more.
