Northern Beaches Walking Plan

We’re developing a footpath plan which will guide the delivery of our future footpath program. We’re seeking your help to identify missing links within our existing footpath network and where we should consider new ones.

  • Background

    11 days ago

    New footpaths are one of the most requested assets from our local residents, and therefore it's important we work with you, our community, to help us plan our future footpath program and establish our walking goals and actions.

    Currently we are working from the adopted footpath and Pedestrian Mobility and Access Plans (PAMPs) developed by the former Councils to inform where we build new footpaths.

    The soon-to-be-developed Northern Beaches Walking Plan will integrate these former plans into one document and will provide a priority footpath schedule to lead our future footpath program.

    Ultimately we seek to provide a connected footpath network which supports people walking as a preferred mode of travel, which will encourage walking as a form of transport. This brings far reaching benefits of reduced vehicle use and traffic congestion, healthy lifestyles and a socially interactive and vibrant places for our community.
