City of Kwinana seeks feedback on Bike and Walk Plan

THE City of Kwinana is seeking feedback from the community on its new Bike and Walk Plan, which will be open for public comment until Friday, November 2.

The plan aims to foster place making throughout the City as well as improving the health and wellbeing of residents by encouraging walking or cycling as a preferred mode of transport for local trips.

Mayor Carol Adams said the purpose of the Bike and Walk Plan was to identify a safe network of cycle routes and walking paths that were convenient for people of all ages and abilities to ride or walk to local destinations such as schools, shops, parks, bushland, bus stops and train stations.

“The plan promotes communities where cycling and walking are the preferred choices for short trips and everyone has the opportunity to choose a healthy lifestyle,” she said.

“The City is looking for comments from the community in relation to whether the proposed cycle and walking routes shown in the draft Bike and Walk Plan are situated in the most convenient locations.”

The draft Plan is available for inspection at the City of Kwinana Administration Offices during office hours until Friday, November 2. The draft plan is also available on the public notices section of the City of Kwinana website.
