Roadside Equestrian and Mountain Bike Trails Strategy

The Shire has a number of strategies supporting different types of trail development. These include the Footpath Strategy (2011), Bicycle Strategy (2010), Shared Paths Strategy (2003) and Equestrian Strategy (1997). This Strategy replaces the Equestrian Strategy, carries forward some actions from the Shared Paths Strategy and provides detail for some actions of the Bicycle Strategy.  In addition it informs open space master plans for reserves by outlining trail users’ needs and identifying the broader trail context.  It focuses on the shared use hinterland roadside trail network. Urban area trails and paths are the focus of the above other strategies. Cr David Gill has, “…asked for this information [to be discussed] in order to receive your views and pursue issues raised by the Friends group and by local individuals.The next step may be to seek improvements to the trails, signposting and publicity to raise awareness. Viability of alternative trails should also be discussed.” The document can be downloaded for your information. At this stage FOCS has responded and requested MPS consider a roadside trail along Cape Schanck Road  from Boneo Road to the lighthouse. Further comments can be emailed to
