  • Hi, when would the council start putting footpaths in around brightwaters 2264 so people can use their wheelchairs and walkers to the shops at bonnells bay....we only have goat tracks now. we cannot even walk up there without tripping on the uneven surfaces. something has to be done as we would rather have the footpaths than your signs telling us where we all are. you are spending money in the wrong places sorry to say

    Thanks for your question regarding footpath construction in the Brightwaters area.

    Council has a Footpath Strategy which uses a criteria to assess the suitability of locations city wide for the installation of footpaths. The Strategy also includes a works register for programming implementation in the highest priority locations.

    Council is currently investigating the extension of the existing shared pathway on Fishery Point Road. This investigation includes extending the shared pathway to Yarrawonga Park Road and also constructing a shared pathway on Bay Vista Road from Fishery Point Road to Brightwaters Hall Reserve on Bulgonia Road. At this stage there are no other sections of footpath listed for construction in this area.

    Unfortunately, areas with no existing footpaths or footpath links in close proximity, such as Brightwaters, generally do not meet the criteria requirements to be prioritised against other competing concrete footpath projects at this time.

    Regards,

    Luke

  • My question is to do with your library at Edgeworth. Up until the last couple of years I used library services very regularly but that is not the case now. My eyesight is one reason the other is it's too dangerous for a person who relies on a wheelchair for mobility. There's also a reason why I think a lot of people would not frequent my local branch at Edgeworth. That is because of its present location. The traffic conditions in this area are not conducive to people who are on foot or in any sort of vehicle. there is virtually no parking and any that is around leaves them still to navigate all the traffic on foot. This library needs to be located away from this very heavy traffic area but it needs to be nearby, and it must have a parking area and it must be handy for the children of the area to be able to use without the worry of navigating the traffic. To me this is a major priority.

    Hi Wallyone,

    Thanks for your feedback and in particular your comments regarding accessibility requirements at Edgeworth Library. The draft Strategy outlines the closure and transition of library services from its current location to a newly built facility at Cameron Park, with an indicative timeframe of 2021.

    Accessibility requirements will be included in the priorities for the Cameron Park facility.

    Thanks again for your feedback.

    Regards,

    Luke.
