Background

Council is currently reviewing its Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) which helps to identify actions to provide convenient access and mobility in and around our community. In addition to identifying strategic outcomes, PAMP includes a works schedule that can be incorporated into other infrastructure plans for clear direction on how to deliver on the commitment to a more accessible community.

 

Overview

A Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) is a strategic action plan which allows councils' to develop and prioritise improvements to the pedestrian network. The aim of a PAMP is to create a safe, accessible and connected network to cater for the needs of all pedestrian groups in the community including elderly people and people with mobility or visual impairments.

The PAMP provides a framework for Council to develop safe convenient and connected pedestrian routes, allowing targeted investment into infrastructure where it is most needed and to cater for the needs of all pedestrian groups in the community including the elderly and people with mobility or visual impairments.

What's Next?

Community feedback received in relation to the Draft PAMP was reviewed and incorporated into a revised Draft Plan which was  presented to Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting of 17 September 2019.  Council resolved, in part, that:-

"The Final Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP), dated 1 August 2018, be adopted subject to:-

a)    The prioritisation for a pedestrian refuge crossing on River Road near the golf course be reprioritised as a Priority 1; and

b)    The General Manager reviewing and finalising the priority of Wilona Avenue having regard to its role as an access point to Wollstonecraft Station;"
