Whether you cycle for fun, fitness or the commute to work, the City of Gosnells wants to hear your views on local cycling infrastructure and the City’s shared path network.

To help develop the City’s Bike Plan 2022 – 2032, the community will be asked to share their experiences and ideas during the public consultation period, starting on Monday 29 November.

Mayor Terresa Lynes encouraged community members to get involved by attending the information session or workshop on Wednesday 8 December or providing feedback via the City’s consultation website yoursay.gosnells.wa.gov.au.

“We want to hear from anyone who uses our shared path network, including families, competitive riders and people who use scooters or mobility equipment,” the Mayor said.

“The City is particularly interested in hearing about locations the community would like prioritised for the bike plan, which will form part of Perth’s continuous cycle network.”

During the public consultation, participants will be asked to complete a survey, map their cycle route or join a working group.

The Department of Transport’s (DoT) Long Term Cycle Network, which has been endorsed by Council, provides a hierarchy of cycle paths to ensure Perth’s path network functions well for people of all ages and abilities.

Following these community consultation sessions, which are jointly funded by the City and DoT, the draft Bike Plan 2022 – 2032 will be provided for further comment in early 2022.
