The Shared Trails Masterplan was an action of our Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2018–2021.
The City Budget 2018-2019 included a commitment to support delivery of the masterplan, and the Council Plan (2019-2020 Update) included commitments to creating linkages across the region.
The aim of this project is to develop a masterplan for the City’s shared trails that will increase physical activity and connections between clubs, schools and social groups. More specifically this includes the following objectives:
- identify opportunities to improve and expand the shared trails network to improve connectivity to key places where people live,learn, work and play
- prioritise when, why, how and in what form,
improvements to the shared trails network is appropriate, based on an objective, evidence- based approach.
A shared trail can be defined as a path or corridor which is used concurrently by multiple types of users (including pedestrians, cyclists, horse
riders, dog walkers etc).
