LEETON shire residents have been urged to be informed and have their say on three major documents endorsed by council at its December meeting.
Council’s final Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP), Footpath and Cycleway Asset Management Plan and Risk Management Policy are on public display until February 12, with residents encouraged to provide their feedback.
PAMP covers the development and maintenance of footpaths, pram ramps and pedestrian crossing facilities in the Leeton town centre, in Whitton and Yanco.
Developed after extensive community consultation earlier last year, proposed priority pedestrian routes have been selected based on schools, child care centres, aged care centres, community centres, hospitals, medical centres, business zones and recreational facilities.
Council’s director of engineering and technical services Barry Heins said 158 submissions were received that provided very useful information last year.
“We can’t do it all so we need to prioritise,” he said. “Now is the community’s final chance to let council know if it has its PAMP priorities right.”
The Footpaths and Cycleways Asset Management Plan, which will supersede the Footpath and Shared Cycleway Maintenance Management Policy. It aims to highlight the various activities and costs associated with managing these assets.
All three documents can be downloaded from council’s website.
