Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is currently undertaking a plan for walk ways/cycle ways and mobility routes within the Local Government Area (LGA). The Active Community Accessibility Plan (ACAP) is designed to investigate the community’s needs in terms of being actively mobile. The plan will encompass bicycle, walkers/joggers and mobility scooter users.
The aim of the plan is to identify existing paths within the region and determine refurbishment, redevelopment and the implementation of new and extended active accessibility pathways throughout the LGA. The plan will define a network of paths as a basis for servicing and encouraging an active community and develop strategies to promote active mobility as a safe, environmental friendly and enjoyable form of recreation and movement within the community.
Council is calling on all interested people and organisations to make submissions for consideration in the formulation of the Active Community Accessibility Plan. In particular Council would like to hear from mobility scooter users, bicycle clubs/users, medical/fitness organisations and residents who are regular walkers/joggers. Although suggestions are welcome from all members of the community.
The objective of the ACAP is to develop a sound strategy to enable Council to construct pathway networks and determine the existing and potential needs of the community. Plan a coordinated approach towards the implementation of practical and safe networks, which can cater for all abilities whilst also providing challenging alternatives. The ACAP will also provide a realistic program to determine funding necessary and gather information on funding sources to implement and further develop the pathways.
