Sunday 18 May Update.
Thank you to everyone who made a representation to the Hobart City Council in support of the Battery Point Foreshore Walkway.
Bicycle Tasmania engaged members and the broader public to provide feedback to the Hobart Council's Development Application. The response from the community has been tremendous, with the council being inundated with approving representations for the foreshore walkway. It is our understanding that this is the most positive representations that the council has ever received for a Development Application!
The foreshore project has been identified by the State as one of critical significance and key to invigorating and enhancing the liveability of Hobart.
The promenade is also central to supporting an active, healthy student population by connecting over 10,000 students at the Sandy Bay Campus with safe cycling and walking facilities to the Central Business District and satellite campuses.
We have until Thursday 15 May to tell Hobart City Council, and the State Government, how important and popular the Battery Point shared pathway is.
Please feel free to edit and send in our suggested representation by clicking email@example.com.
And most importantly, don't forget to ask all your friends and family to do the same!
You can find the complete set of planning documents at this link (note, its application number 14-00207 on this page, and the Plans and Montage files will give you the gist of what is planned).
This project is important to Hobart riders because it creates a direct shared path link for walkers and bicycle users between Sandy Bay, the Hobart waterfront and Central Business District. Read more about the background in our project sheet here: www.biketas.org.au/battery_point_foreshore.
