Northern Regional Trails Strategy 2022

Have your say until 19 September 2022.

A focus to deliver and strengthen trails that connect significant features across municipalities and provide wide-scale benefits for the community has been created. The draft 2022 Northern  Trails Strategy includes an updated blueprint and strategic framework for the future development and maintenance of a recreational off-road trail network across northern metropolitan Melbourne.

As a collaborative project between Moreland, Darebin, Banyule, Hume, Whittlesea, and Nillumbik Councils, Northern Trails 2022 aims to ensure integration of planning, advocacy and development efforts, while making recommendations for trail infrastructure, management, marketing and improvement projects.

The 2022 update reflects changes in context since the 2016 Strategy was adopted including completed trail projects, revised Council priorities, modified landscape as a result of infrastructure projects and changes from growth in population, economy and urban footprint.

The 2022 Strategy assesses proposed actions for trail improvement against a set of criteria to come up with a priority list of the ‘top ten unfunded trail action items’ across northern metropolitan Melbourne. the Banyule City Council would love to know which of these are most important to you!

In addition, each of the partner Councils has their own list of ten priorities based on internal strategies and community feedback.

Again, the council would love to know which of these you think are most important and why!

You have until September 19th 2022 to do so. Let us know now!
