Move - Northern Beaches Transport Discussion Paper


We’re developing a transport strategy for the Northern Beaches which will guide future planning and implementation of transport, travel, parking projects and infrastructure across the northern beaches for the next 20 years. The first step is to generate community discussion on our traffic and transport priorities through our Move - Northern Beaches Transport Discussion Paper.

  • Project update - July 2018

    29 days ago

    The first phase of consultation for our Move Northern Beaches Transport Strategy Discussion Paper kicked off between Saturday 14 April and Sunday 13 May 2018.

    It’s clear from your feedback that a demand for better public transport and more active transport options is shared throughout our community.

    You’ve told us what’s important to you and we’re now drafting the Move Northern Beaches Transport Strategy from your feedback.

    Move Northern Beaches will provide the framework for the delivery of our future transport network over the next 20 years. The strategy aims to change how we move around at home on the Northern Beaches and how we travel to other areas in Sydney, so that we can be less reliant on cars, with accessible, frequent and better public transport. It also looks at how we can support active transport into the future.

    The draft Move Northern Beaches Transport Strategy will be placed in the Council meeting agenda on Tuesday 28 August for endorsement.

    You will have the opportunity to comment on the draft strategy through late August and September to let us know whether the draft strategy matches your transport needs now and over the next 20 years.

    The community engagement report is now available to view.

  • Background

    4 months ago

    We are creating a transport strategy which will address the challenges of how we connect and move around the Northern Beaches.

    Through the ‘Move - Northern Beaches Transport Discussion Paper’ we’re looking to generate discussions about transport and travel concerns and priorities.

    Your feedback on the discussion paper will establish strategic direction across:
    • Integrated Transport and Landuse
    • Walking and Cycling
    • Public and Community Transport
    • Roads and Traffic
    • Parking
    It will also be used to engage with key transport stakeholders such as neighbouring councils, transport providers and state and federal agencies.
