Have your say on options for a new shared pathway
Two options for the shared pathway - along the foreshore or road - are now on public exhibition.
Council Director Infrastructure Services, Boris Bolgoff said this community advocated project would deliver an array of benefits for locals and visitors.
"This project will improve pedestrian safety, connectivity between local destinations, and provide an additional recreational facility," Mr Bolgoff said.
"This pathway will achieve multiple important objectives - complete a missing link, loop around a scenic waterway, improve connectivity and offer a healthy and environmentally friendly transport option."
"Our community has flagged this project as a priority and it is identified in Council's Bike Plan and s7.12 Developer Contributions Plan.
"The project is not currently fully funded and completion is dependent on securing of grant funding and completion in stages."
Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said he encouraged community members to let Council know their preferred option.
"A shared pathway connecting Mannering Park and Chain Valley Bay is an important amenity, particularly for community members who live in the area," Mr Persson said.
"Consider the two options presented and let Council know what you think will deliver the best results for locals and visitors to the Coast."
