Community engagement concluded and next steps

July 16, 2014

Community engagement on the draft Walking Plan has ended. The engagement took place from 4 June to 15 July 2014.

The City of Melbourne received submissions on the plan as well as responses to a feedback form. A public talk, “The Future of Walking in Melbourne”, was held on 26 June as part of the engagement phase. The talk was attended by 90 people and featured a panel of speakers including engineering, economic and planning experts who helped develop the draft Walking Plan. The Walking Plan team have also met with precinct business groups and residents groups about the plan.

The City of Melbourne is now reviewing submissions on the draft Walking Plan. The Walking Plan team will recommend changes to the plan based on submissions and feedback. The Walking Plan and a report on the community engagement process is expected to be presented to Council later in 2014.
