Pedestrian Access & Mobility Plan (PAMP)
Council has prepared a 10 year Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) to provide a strategic and holistic approach to footpath provision and maintenance across the Shire. This is Council's first overarching PAMP and it will be used to identify priorities for pedestrians and to improve footpaths and footpath networks over the next decade.
What's the purpose of the new PAMP?
The purpose of the PAMP is to use feedback and ideas from the community about their experience of footpaths around the Shire and to identify where improvements need to made. The new 10 year PAMP will assist Council in prioritisation of works and enable community groups to prepare strategically-aligned grant applications in the future.
Thank you for your input
During October and November 2018, we asked the community to have their say by completing an online survey. We were overwhelmed with helpful responses, ideas and feedback.
We also conducted five design workshops around the Byron Shire which were well-attended and enabled us to gain important local insights into the issues, challenges and preferred design solutions.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this consultation. Your feedback and ideas were considered during the development of the PAMP. The draft plan went on public exhibition for a period of 28 days, until 26 July 2019 and provided the community with a final opportunity to comment.
The Byron Shire PAMP was submitted to Council for adoption on 26 September 2019 but Council deferred the decision to the October meeting to ensure the community had a chance to review the changes made in developing the final document.
