Current consultation

Paths and Trails Strategy

As part of the Live.Move.Yarra Ranges initiative, we are seeking feedback to develop a Path and Trails Strategy. This strategy is being developed to continue the works commenced by the previous Yarra Ranges Council Hike and Bike Strategy.

The strategy will focus on the ongoing development of connected and accessible local walking paths and regional trails that inspire, support and encourage the community to walk, ride or run in Yarra Ranges.

Online survey

This is your chance to share your thoughts and big ideas to help shape our active future.

Take our short survey to help us understand:

  • How you use our paths and trails
  • What qualities about our paths and trails are important to you
  • How you would like to use them in the future;
  • Where you think the gaps are and where you think improvements could be made. 

The survey closes on 10 November and should take about 5 minutes to complete. Your information will be kept confidential.

We recently asked you how transport could be improved in the future. We asked you to tell us:

  • What modes of transport do you use?
  • What are some of the things that influence the way you travel around the Yarra Ranges?
  • Are there any challenges or barriers that you experience?
  • What works well?

Updates coming soon.
