Connecting the community
Connecting the community through recreation trails and paths is important to us, so you can continue to do what you love!
The Banyule's Open Space Plan 2016-2031 recommends that we look at ways to connect the rural areas of Lower Plenty to the community horse riding facilities in Viewbank.
To provide this connection we are exploring the feasibility of a multi-use trail between Lower Plenty and Viewbank. The trail will be approximately 1 kilometre in length and will connect Bonds Road to Martins Lane via a bridge crossing the Plenty River.
In addition to pedestrians and cyclists, the trail will provide a safe and practical connection for horse riding between the agistment areas of Lower Plenty and the formal horse riding facilities of the North Eastern Horse and Pony Club and Riding for the Disabled in Viewbank.
Additionally, we will explore how this proposed trail links to existing pedestrian, cycling and horse riding trails locally and within Shire of Nillumbik, to connect you further.
Have your say
Between February and March we will be conducting a study and holding meetings with key stakeholders to determine if a multi-use trail will be a feasible addition to the area.
We are keen to hear your feedback on the proposed multi-use trail. Share your thoughts until 11 March 2019.
The findings of the consultation and recommended outcomes will be available for review and comment in April 2019. All feedback will be used to ensure the outcomes are in line with community expectations.
