Pedestrian Access & Mobility Plan (PAMP)

Council is preparing 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 gather feedback and ideas from the community about their use and 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 have been incorporated into development of the draft PAMP. To comment on the draft PAMP, email

What happens next?

Both draft plans are now on public exhibition for a period of 28 days, until 26 July 2019.  This will provide a final opportunity for the community to comment and provide feedback on what has been proposed.

All comments received during the public exhibition period will be reported back to Council so that the PAMP and Bike Plan can be finalised.
