Seeking Expressions of Interest
We are looking for community members to attend workshops to test out different lighting designs on shared user paths in Thomastown, Epping and Epping North. We want to better understand what types of lighting options would help make people using these paths at night feel safer. The workshops will inform the development of guiding principles for Council to use when considering lighting shared user paths in the future.
What is a shared user path? Shared user paths are not like a usual footpath on your street, they are paths used by pedestrians and cyclists. They connect one place to another, for example it might be a path you use to walk home from the train station or a short cut to the shops, you might use a shared user path for daily exercise.
Everyone is welcome to express interest, please let us know below if you have any access needs. We are particularly interested in the views of women, gender diverse, Aboriginal, young people and people with disability, new residents and those from a diverse cultural background because we know that sometimes these groups of people feel more unsafe in the public areas of Whittlesea than others.
Participants who complete a workshop will receive one $30 Coles/Myer gift card in recognition of their time and input.
