Have your say on Plan to support walking
We’ve prepared a draft Walking Action Plan to improve the walking environment and encourage people to walk more often.
Before we finalise the Plan we want to hear what you think.
The Walking Action Plan is our long-term plan that introduces strategic priorities and actions to create a Stonnington walking network to benefit all - including the young, the elderly, parents with young children, and people with disabilities.
The draft Plan was developed following a 2021 community engagement program where the community and stakeholders were invited to share ideas on how to improve the walking environment and encourage people to walk more often.
The plan introduces four strategic priority areas:
- Safe, accessible and inclusive streets for people.
- Efficient, connected and convenient walking networks underpinning the local economy.
- Walking for healthy lifestyles and community connection.
- Interconnected, green and resilient walking environments.
Supporting each strategic priority is a series of actions that over the short-, medium- and long-term will deliver important improvements to the walking network across Stonnington.
Through upgrades to walking infrastructure, improved safety and education we aim to elevate walking as a transport option of choice to every resident and visitor to our city.
Before finalising the document, until Sunday 1 May we invite you to view the draft Walking Plan and provide feedback below.
All feedback will be considered, and the draft refined before presenting for Council approval later this year.
