Bass Coast Local News:
The next step in pathway plans
Bass Coast Shire Council is continuing to research the priority projects for pathways in Bass Coast through a series of community engagement sessions and an easy to use online map.
By Portal Admin - 10th April 2017 - Back to NewsLast year Council developed the Aspirational Network Pathways Plan 2016. This plan identified 53 aspirational paths that have not been built and are not currently on any work plans.
Council are now embarking on a month of community consultation to determine the areas of priority. There will be four community engagement sessions and an online engagement survey in the form of an interactive map.
The map shows the existing aspirational pathways and allows users to join in the conversation by commenting their support or ideas on proposed pathways, adding a new ‘Like Spot’ or ‘Idea Spot’ to a location on the map, and commenting on other 'Spots'. This map is open for comment from 10 April to 7 May 2017 and available via the webpage: http://www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/connectingbc.
For those who prefer face to face engagement, there are four Open Houses sessions planned for community members to talk with staff in person.
- Saturday, 29 April 2017 from 11.00am to 1.00pm at Cowes Cultural Centre
- Tuesday, 2 May 2017 from 11.00am to 1.00pm at the Inverloch Library
- Tuesday, 2 May 2017 from 3.30pm to 5.30pm at the Wonthaggi Library
- Wednesday, 3 May 2017 from 3.00pm to 5.00pm at the Grantville Customer Service Centre
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained that the information gathered through these sessions and the online map will inform future pathway construction plans and will feed into pathways and asset management strategies.
"We had a great response from community groups in continuing the development of the Aspirational Network Pathways Plan. Now we need to finish the job by identifying the most important areas so that we can begin developing work plans and budgets to make these aspirations a reality."
