Pedestrian Friendly Beechwood, Comboyne, Long Flat, North Shore and Telegraph Point

Consultation has concluded

Footpaths help connect a community. Have your say about where new footpaths and road crossings could be located in our villages to make them more pedestrian friendly.


To get involved and have your say:


  • Review the draft Small Villages PAMP (Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan - in the document library on the right).
  • Share your thoughts by doing the brief survey submission below.

Your feedback will help us:

  • Improve pedestrian access.
  • Prioritise safe and convenient crossing opportunities of major roads.
  • Identify footpaths that can be built as part of Council’s future delivery and operational plans.
  • Provide a focus for Council to source grants from other levels of government.

About this project.
Council held five workshops and listened to the community about where the most important places that footpaths and road crossings could be located. This community feedback helped Council prepare a draft Plan to make walking easier and safer by building footpaths and crossings at critical locations.

This plan is called the Small Villages Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) and includes five townships: Beechwood, Comboyne, Long Flat, North Shore and Telegraph Point.


Note

This project is to create a plan. The plan will help Council prioritise footpath works and apply for grant funding. This will be balanced across the highest priorities for the whole region including the footpath plans for Wauchope, Laurieton and Port Macquarie.

  • Community Workshops & Walking Tours

    Beechwood 001 (small)

    The Council project team held pedestrian planning workshops at Beechwood, Comboyne, Long Flat, North Shore and Telegraph Point over the last two weeks. Total attendance for the five workshops was about 45 community members.

    The purpose of the gatherings was to hear from the local community as this will help Council in developing a plan that addresses the barriers to people getting around, and ensure better pedestrian infrastructure, such as footpaths and safe crossings, is provided at critical locations.

    It is expected that a draft Small Villages Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan will be placed on public exhibition in the new year. The plan will act as a blueprint to assist Council in determining future pedestrian and mobility works programs and funding opportunities.

    Background

    Council has received a grant of $20,000 from the Roads & Maritime Services Active Transport Fund to prepare a Small Villages Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan. ARUP has been awarded the contract to develop the study after a public expressions of Interest process.

    ARUP will create a special map for each village which shows existing footpaths and where the high priority footpaths and road crossings are needed.

    The maps will be developed through a combination of field investigations and community workshops.
