Stepping Forward with Yarriambiack's Footpaths
Yarriambiack Shire Council is conducting a review of its Footpath Hierarchy, hoping to improve footpaths for the local community.
According to the Council, the Footpath Hierarchy is an essential tool in the management of all footpaths for which Council has responsibility.
The hierarchy will determine a footprint of standards for the footpaths and will allow Council to plan for new footpaths, upgrades, renewal works and maintenance regimes.
As limited funding is available for the district's footpaths, the Council hopes the Hierarchy, in conjunction with community consultation, will allow them to direct money to the places that need it most.
A copy of Council’s current Footpath Hierarchy is available at the Yarriambiack Shire Offices in Warracknabeal and Gateway BEET in Hopetoun, or can be accessed online at the Council’s website.
Community consultation can be provided through an online survey, which is open until August 25.
Written submissions can be addressed to Mr Ray Campling, Chief Executive Officer, Yarriambiack Shire Council, PO Box 243, Warracknabeal, Vic. 3393.
