Don't Disband North Sydney Council's Active Transport Voice!

Dear Mayor and Councillors, we urge you to support the continuation of the North Sydney Active Transport Sub-committee and its great work in support of better transport and mobility choices for the entire community.

Why is this important?

1. The Active Transport Sub-committee is a key forum for open discussion and to tap into ideas from pedestrians and bicyclists and the community at large. The committee has proven its value consistently over many years and is well attended.
2. North Sydney is both a destination and a gateway for thousands of cyclists and pedestrians and the Sub-committee can act as both a voice and conduit to keep this group informed and engaged when necessary.
3. At a time when transport issues are more complex and critical to a well functioning city, the Sub-committee is a valuable resource to assist the Council in its deliberations regarding use of roads and paths.
4. The only alternative, the Traffic Committee, is incompatible with supporting many active transport issues including those that are not on public roads.
