On behalf of Leeton Shire Council, GHD is preparing a Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) for Leeton Shire and would like your input on walking in your area. Your feedback will allow us to understand walking behaviours and will also provide us with information to identify opportunities for improving the walking network in Leeton, Whitton and Yanco.

Council’s aim are to:

  • Develop and connect a continuous and comprehensive network of footpaths and other pedestrians infrastructure such as crossings, kerbs etc.
  • Make the area safer and easier to walk around
  • Put pedestrians at the forefront of planning for the future
  • Develop a priority action plan for our future pedestrian improvement works


If you are a resident, worker, student, or visitor to the area we would welcome your input for this study. 
The study area will be focused on Leeton, Whitton and Yanco.
