Lismore City Council is seeking community input on the draft Walking, Cycling and Micromobility Strategy, a long-term plan that guides future investment in, and maintenance of, walking and cycling infrastructure in the Lismore area.

In 2021, Lismore City Council carried out a community survey to gauge feedback on the state of our existing walking and cycling infrastructure as well as our public open spaces.

The feedback received from the community was used to develop the draft Walking, Cycling and Micromobility Strategy.

The vision and aims of the strategy are that:

‘People of all ages and abilities in Lismore’s urban area and villages will access safe, connected and attractive options for walking, cycling and micromobility’.

The draft strategy identifies the benefits of walking and cycling, the barriers and opportunities in Lismore and sets out the following four objectives and associated actions that will be undertaken by Council over the 10 year horizon of the strategy:

  • Safe and Connected Infrastructure: Plan, deliver and maintain a well-connected network of walking and cycling paths that reach key destinations
  • Encourage Participation: Encouraging a positive culture of walking and cycling through promotion and education initiatives as well as ‘on-the-ground’ infrastructure and amenity improvements
  • Innovative Initiatives: Pilot projects that support the growth of walking, cycling and micromobility
  • Value For Money: Monitor the benefits of walking and cycling from a health, economic and tourism perspective

At the heart of the Strategy is an action plan divided into key urban precincts and village areas within the Lismore Local Government Area. For each precinct a map and associated table shows the proposed upgrades and connections.

Submissions can be sent via:
