Pathway Strategy

Council at its meeting on 27 June 2012 endorsed the 2012 Ten Year Pathway Strategy following a recent review of the 2006 Pathway Strategy.


In 2004, the Surf Coast Shire Community Plan highlighted the desire of many local communities to significantly improve pedestrian pathways around their townships.

It was identified that the establishment of a good quality pathway network would improve physical and social connections as well as promoting the environment and general health.

In 2006, the Surf Coast Shire developed a Pathway Strategy outlining a comprehensive plan of existing and potential pathway linkages including footpaths, shared pathways, on-road bike lanes and walking tracks.
