Roads and Footpaths Strategies

FOOTPATH AND TRANSPORT STRATEGIES OUT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

Mansfield Shire Council has prepared strategies for future road transport and footpath enhancements and developments within Mansfield Shire and is inviting community feedback on these strategies.

Mansfield Transportation Strategy
Transportation links into and within Mansfield Shire are critical for the economic well-being of the shire. The ‘Future Vision – Mansfield Transportation Strategy’ paper identifies key transport routes, school bus routes and priority routes for tourism and economic activity, and addresses critical locations and residential upgrades. It is intended to tie together the needs of various sectors of the community and to provide a basis for evaluating road proposals.

Mansfield Footpath Strategy
The footpath network within the Mansfield Shire provides significant community benefits for recreation and access. The ‘Mansfield Footpath Strategy’ paper proposes a range of projects to address issues and gaps in the existing Mansfield footpath network. Initially, these are focussed on the Mansfield township, but projects for other towns will be incorporated into the strategy as an outcome from community consultation. A basis for evaluating footpath proposals is incorporated in the strategy.

Council is keen to receive feedback from the community on both strategies. Information sessions will be held during the comment period to further explain the strategies. Comments can be made in writing or via email to council@mansfield.vic.gov.au.  To discuss either of the Strategies, contact Robert Graves, Acting Engineering and Works Manager on 5775 8505.  The period for comment on will close on 31 August 2016.
