Background

The draft Northern Regional Trails Strategy 2022 builds on the foundations of the previous 2016 Strategy.

Its focus is to deliver and strengthen trails that connect significant features across municipalities and provide wide-scale benefits for the community. The draft 2022 Strategy outlines an updated blueprint and strategic framework for the future development and maintenance of a recreational off-road trail network across northern metropolitan Melbourne.

As a collaborative project between Moreland, Darebin, Banyule, Hume, Whittlesea, and Nillumbik Councils, Northern Trails 2022 aims to ensure integration of planning, advocacy and development efforts, while making recommendations regarding trail infrastructure, management, marketing and improvement projects.

The 2022 update reflects changes in context since the 2016 Strategy was adopted including completed trail projects, revised Council priorities, modified landscape as a result of infrastructure projects and changes from growth in population, economy and urban footprint.
