The aim of the Ride It, Walk It, Indigo Plan is to provide a strategic framework to guide Indigo Shire Council on cycling, walking and horse riding opportunities such as paths / trails, infrastructure, events, programs and services for the next 10 years.
Council requested this Plan to improve use of existing cycling, walking and horse riding infrastructure within the municipality and to increase participation rates in each of these physical activities.
Improving infrastructure usage and participation rates can have a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of the community.
Community engagement during the development of this plan had to be adapted due to the impacts of COVID19. It involved:
- 231 responses to an online community survey,
- 222 responses to the use of the social pinpoint online mapping consultation tool
- 18 key stakeholder interviews
- 14 written submissions during the plans development phase
- 7 Facebook Comments
