Integrated Transport Plan endorsed by Council
The City's Integrated Transport Plan (ITP) was endorsed by Council at the September 2021 Ordinary Council Meeting.
The ITP will help us facilitate a connected and accessible local transport network. The ITP:
- Identifies and addresses transport issues
- Manages travel demand
- Aligns transport and land use planning
- Improves mobility equity and access
It focuses on five key areas – active travel like walking and cycling, public transport, road transport, parking and public spaces. It plans for walkable neighbourhoods, a well connected cycling network, and coordinated, efficient public transport.
The draft Integrated Transport Plan was available for community and stakeholder feedback from 10 May until 8 June 2021 with 142 submissions were received. The Plan was subsequently revised to incorporate the feedback, where appropriate, and presented to Council at the September 2021 Council Meeting where it was formally endorsed.
The ITP forms part of Thriving Neighbourhoods along with the Economic Development Plan and Local Planning Scheme 7. These projects work together to manage the City’s growth.
