Shining a spotlight on safe pedestrian access

Residents are encouraged to provide feedback to Kempsey Shire Council to assist in reviewing the pedestrian network across the shire.

Council is committed to providing safe, convenient and connected pedestrian routes for all residents, including the elderly, people with mobility or vision impairments, parents with prams and school children.

Council recently published a Bicycle Path Safety Audit Report which was based on substantial feedback from the community. The next step in the planning process is to conduct a Pedestrian Facilities Audit.

Community feedback will assist Council in identifying safety concerns and areas that need improving in pedestrian infrastructure such as footpaths, intersections, signage, lighting, pedestrian crossings and shared walkways.

The data from the audit will then help inform the works programs and budgets allocated to improving pedestrian facilities.

To provide photos and on the spot reporting of pedestrian infrastructure or areas you believe create potentially unsafe conditions please visit Council’s engagement website, Your Say Macleay –
