ACCESS: Local students using pedestrian pathways in Kurri Kurri.Community feedback is sought on Cessnock City Council’sdraft Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP), which is on exhibition until June 8.

With significant population growth projected for 2031, council saw a need to undertake planning of a long-term strategy and action plan for pedestrian facilities within the Cessnock local government area.

Cessnock Mayor Bob Pynsent hopes Cessnock and surrounds will have access to safe, convenient and connected pedestrian routes for the community to enjoy.

“Walking is not only a great way to keep fit and healthy, it is one of the most efficient modes of transport in and around the city centre,” Cr Pynsent said.

“Solid pedestrian infrastructure will cater for the population growth expected in the coming years, serving our local community and the local tourism industry.”

Based on the population growth between the 2006 and 2011 Census, it is projected Cessnock City’s population will grow at least another 30 percent by 2031.

The identified priority works program will form the basis of council’s 10-year Pathways Construction Program (identified in the PAMP) and will assist council in seeking external funding opportunities as they become available.

The recommendations detailed in the draft PAMP are based on a comprehensive document review, pedestrian facilities audit, community and key stakeholder consultation, industry trends analysis and consideration of local environmental, economic and social influences.

The draft strategy document can be viewed at council’s administration building, Cessnock and Kurri libraries andat老域名cessnock.nsw.gov备案老域名/community/exhibition.
