Northern Beaches Walking Plan

We’ve developed a draft Northern Beaches Walking Plan which will inform the delivery of our walking priorities and new footpaths across the Northern Beaches.

We’ve developed a draft Northern Beaches Walking Plan which will inform the delivery of our walking priorities and new footpaths across the Northern Beaches.

  • Northern Beaches Walking Plan adopted

    5 days ago

    At the council meeting held on Tuesday 16 April 2019 Council adopted the Northern Beaches Walking Plan.

    The plan provides the priority schedule for the delivery of new footpaths across the area and as well as a number of actions to improve pedestrian access and connectivity.

    The Council minutes will be available for viewing on our website after the Easter break.

    The local community has been instrumental in achieving increased funding for the construction of new footpaths through their high level of interest in the project. This interest has resulted in an annual budget for new footpaths being increased to $3million for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years.

    We have now commenced the design process for the construction of the identified highest priority footpaths in the 2019/20 Financial Year. The full list of footpaths will be detailed on our website following this process.

    Engagement on this project is now closed.

  • Step through the Walking plan with us

    3 months ago

    Our first two Walkshops covered approximately 7km and clocked up 11,000 steps in the process.

    Participants had the opportunity to talk with the project manager about the draft plan as they walked local streets.

    Why not register to attend one of four remaining Walkshops we're hosting over the next couple of weeks.
