Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

MEDIA RELEASE - Have your say on tracks and trails

24 May 2019

The spotlight is on the Glenelg Shire’s tracks and trails and community members are invited to have their say on how they use the region’s vast trail network for running, cycling, walking, rolling or paddling.

Council is currently developing the Glenelg Shire Tracks and Trails Strategy, seeking to identify opportunities to better promote and enhance the diverse range of tracks and trails within the shire.

As part of the development of the strategy, residents who use any of the tracks or trails within the shire are encouraged to submit their feedback as part of an online survey.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank hoped to see all user groups, from BMX through to horse riders, completing the short survey.

“If you ride your bike through the forests, run along the coastlines or paddle along our river pathways you are using our tracks and trails and we want to hear from you. We want to gather any feedback you may have, including any ideas or issues you have to improve the tracks and trails network,” she said.

“The feedback we receive will be instrumental in shaping the Glenelg Shire Tracks and Trails Strategy, a first of its kind document which will outline council’s priorities for the tracks and trails network and guide future investment.

“In particular, the strategy will focus on the key areas of recreation (health and wellbeing), tourism (cultural, environmental and recreational) and connectivity (commuter use).

“I urge all community members to take five minutes to head to the Your Say Glenelg website and complete the Tracks and Trails Survey – your input will help us determine how we can improve our tracks and trails for the future.”

To complete the Glenelg Shire Tracks and Trails Strategy Survey please visit the Your Say Glenelg website via Hard copies can be accessed at council’s Customer Service Centres.

The survey will close 5pm, Friday 7 June 2019.
