Screen Shot 2019-01-07 at 12.46.39 pm

The plan will identify the following

Ways to make walking and cycling easier and more accessible and more enjoyable for more people.

  • Priority improvements to the quality, safety and continuous nature of facilities to better connect people to where they want to go.
  • What can be done to create a culture of cycling and walking in Wangaratta planning and management functions.
  • How to encourage more people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to ride and walk for longer and more often. 

 

Why is Council doing this plan?

There are considerable benefits of cycling and walking. These include the personal benefits of physical exercise and the mental health benefits of being outdoors. Walking and cycling are very affordable ways to travel and stay fit, to socialise and reduce stress and see the outdoors.

More people walking and cycling in Wangaratta will mean better health outcomes for the community, less traffic congestion and demand for parking, quieter, cleaner and a greener Wangaratta. More visitors walking and cycling in Wangaratta will mean more economic benefits for the City.

The plan will guide Council's planning and management priorities over the next 10 years, determine how Wangaratta could be more pedestrian and bicycle friendly and as well as a guide for funding decisions and what projects should seek external funding.

Why is it important that the community make input into this plan?

Community input will help us to see what is important to the community about walking and cycling.

Your comments will also help Council prioritise actions to make the Rural City of Wangaratta more walking and cycling friendly.
