Council wants your feedback!
November 2022 update:
Consultation has closed on the surveys for Walking and Cycling in Cumberland, and submissions are now being reviewed. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.
October 2022 consultation:
Cumberland City Council is seeking your ideas, thoughts and feedback on walking and cycling in our area.
This will help us develop a strategy to make walking and cycling in our neighbourhoods safer, more enjoyable and convenient for all ages and abilities.
If you live in Cumberland, work in the area, or pass through our neighbourhoods, we want to hear from you.
Why is walking and cycling important?
Healthier Communities: Physical activity is important for good health however only 45% of adults achieve the recommended amount of exercise per day, and only a third of Australian children now regularly walk or cycle to school.
Better Environment: Walking and cycling leads to a cleaner environment. Reductions in car travel related to more walking and cycling cleans the air and reduces noise on our streets.
Economic benefits: Walking and cycling can create major savings for households. Switching to walking and cycling reduces transport costs.
