  • Engagement update - What we've heard so far

    2 months ago

    In preparation for our drop-in sessions, that commenced mid-February, we collated feedback received via our online comment form and interactive mapping tool and used this information to guide discussions with our community.

    This feedback was broken down by area and displayed at our drop-in sessions. We've made this interim feedback available in our document library for you to review.

    Community interest in the project has been rewarding with over 550 people attending our drop-ins held in the past week at:

    Allambie Heights, Avalon, Balgowlah, Collaroy Plateau,Dee Why, Elanora Heights, Freshwater, Forestville, Mona Vale, Narraweena, North Balgowlah, Terrey Hills and Warriewood.

    There is still an opportunity to attend a drop-in at at Forestville this week:

    Sat 24 Feb, 9.30-noon - Forestville shops, Starkey Street

    There's still time to provide feedback using our interactive map or comment form. We'd like to hear where you would like us to consider a footpath for inclusion in the Northern Beaches Walking Plan.

  • Background

    5 months 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.
