The Town has been working with the Department of Transport (DoT) since 2018 on a draft Long Term Cycle Network (LTCN) that the DoT is preparing for the Perth to Peel region. That year, the Town prepared an online survey and invited residents to participate. Responses received were used to develop various routes for the LTCN. These were supported by Council in 2019 before being submitted to the State Government for consideration. Following this, the DoT presented a draft LTCN for Cottesloe which was recently put out to the community for further consultation and brought back to Council for endorsement at the Council Meeting held in April 2020.

The draft LTCN is a concept plan which designates a hierarchy of cycle routes as Primary, Secondary or Local. The main purpose of the document is for allocating future funding by the State Government. Once that has been established, the Town will consult with our community and work collaboratively with residents on designs developed for Council approval.

The endorsed draft LTCN is an excellent first step towards improving traffic and safety for all road users, consistent with the community’s expectations. View the Department of Transport Cottesloe Long Term Cycle Network Plan.
