Council is reviewing its Recreation in Natural Areas Strategy to help us manage the way people use our natural areas for recreation, for activities such as walking, trail running, rock climbing, abseiling, bouldering, mountain biking, orienteering and trekking.
The Strategy aims to support a diverse and accessible range of recreation opportunities within our natural areas in a way that protects and enhances our local environment.
What’s happening now?
In August 2018 we sought input through an online survey and conducted four consultation workshops with individuals and groups who undertake recreational activities in our natural areas. The workshops focused on:
- Orienteering and regaining.
- Track dependent recreation (trail running, walking etc.).
- Mountain biking.
- Rock climbing, abseiling and bouldering.
In November 2018 we sought input through an online survey and conducted a consultation workshop with individuals and groups who have a specific interest in the Strategy from an environmental perspective.
What's happening next?
Following the targeted consultation sessions, the draft Strategy is currently being prepared and will be presented at a community forum once completed.. The Strategy will also be placed on public exhibition prior to its adoption by Council, offering another chance for the community to provide feedback.
