What is the purpose of a Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP)?

    A PAMP guides how Councils enhance pedestrian networks, allowing everyone to enjoy safe, convenient, and independent mobility. The works identified as part of the PAMP will also encourage the shift from car dependency to walking, where possible. Our commitment to this is explained in the Integrated Transport Strategy (2017). 

    What is and is not included in a Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan?

    Your feedback will determine where we need to make improvements. Works might include: 

    • Provide kerb ramps (such as for prams, wheelchairs, walking frames, etc) 
    • Safe crossings points (such as pedestrian crossings and refuge islands 
    • Footpath connectivity and continuity between popular destinations.  

    We appreciate that a lack of amenities plays a large part when deciding how you move around. Works such as improving shade, seating, toilets and water bubblers along your journey are not included in the PAMP. However, if you share ideas for where you need these, we can pass this feedback on to the relevant team for future planning.  

    What happened with the former Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plans?

    The Inner West area has changed a lot in recent years. The consultant will be doing an audit of what works have been completed. This will be combined with your feedback to determine if any incomplete items are still a priority. 

    I’ve already provided feedback into parking and traffic studies. Will this be considered?

    Some parts of the community have participated in localised studies to prioritise traffic management and improve safety for all users. Relevant feedback will be included as part of this work. If you have any additional concerns, please share them on the interactive map.  

    What issues are you already aware of?

    There are three key issues that the community has already made us aware of via customer requests and feedback on other projects. These include:

    • Pedestrian safety issues around schools
    • Accessibility of pathways for people living with mobility impairments 
    • General safety in areas where there is high pedestrian and vehicle activity, such as major intersections near public transport and the shops. 

    Your feedback will help us identify the top priorities and other concerns that the community has.
