WestCycle is pleased to advise that the South West Mountain Bike Master Plan is open for public comment.
The South West Mountain Bike Master Plan is the first regional master plan to be developed out of the recommendations of the Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy.
The Strategy identifies the south west as a significant mountain biking hotspot and recommends that masterplanning is undertaken to guide future mountain bike development in the region.
Funded by the Department of Parks and Wildlife and a grant from Lotterywest and prepared by Common Ground Trails on behalf of WestCycle in partnership with the departments of Sport and Recreation and Parks and Wildlife, the West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) and representatives from the mountain bike community, the South West Mountain Bike Master Plan covers the south west of the state from Bunbury down to Pemberton.
The Master Plan identifies and prioritises areas where high-quality, sustainable and accessible mountain bike trails could be developed. Local trail planning will then guide the delivery of trails, subject to resources and relevant permissions.
Interested organisations and individuals are invited to comment on the draft South West Mountain Bike Master Plan.
The draft Master Plan and details of how to submit comments are now available from WestCycle’s website
Submissions must be made by 5pm on 04 November 2014.
The draft Master Plan will then be reviewed in light of all comments received.
