Darebin Walking Strategy 2018-2028

This project has concluded.

The City of Darebin aims to promote and facilitate walking for a range of outcomes; including leisure and recreation, physical activity and wellbeing, social interaction, economic gain, improved community participation in public spaces, and transport. In order to achieve this we have drafted the Darebin Walking Strategy 2018-2028 which draws together a significant amount of work already invested into walking by Council, from signing of the International Charter for Walking in 2008, to the development of a Principal Pedestrian Network in 2015/16, and the completion of a “WalkSpot” study in 2017.

Walking is embedded into many daily elements of our lives. Although it is not often given a second thought, walking is a simple and effective means to achieve wellbeing, social inclusion, environmental and economic benefits across our community. For many of us, it is simply the easiest and most time-effective way to get from place to place.

The Walking Strategy specifically looks at pedestrians and our pedestrian network as an evolving shift towards more sustainable travel, how we can more directly facilitate the adoption of walking as a viable means of transport, and what features our streets and footpaths should have to encourage more people to walk more often. The Strategy will guide Council's actions and investment into walking over the next 10 years.
