Planning for more active travel in Sydney

Planning for more active travel in Sydney - Creating more liveable local communities

 

Customs House, Wednesday 11th November 2015, 9:30am - 1:00pm

 

The creation of healthier, more supportive environments for active living provides planning, transport and health professionals with the opportunity to be positive and proactive and help address the health of local communities.  

The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework is the principal planning and reporting tool for NSW local councils. Active living issues such as increasing cycling can be addressed at all levels of the IP&R framework.

The Planning for more active travel in Sydney forum was held on Wednesday 11th November 2015 to assist local councils to promote more active travel through the IP&R framework.

Chris Rissel is the Director of the NSW Office of Preventive Health.  He is actively involved in promoting cycling as a form of active transport to increase population levels of physical activity.
