Movement & Transport
Co-ordination of transport and land use planning plays a pivotal role in the sustainable development of the local economy. Where and how we build our residential and work environments and supporting transport infrastructure including roads, footpaths, cycle ways, buses and rail infrastructure, is fundamental for sustainable communities, climate action and quality of life considerations. It is essential that the new Local Area Plan will promote a more efficient strategic transport system integrated with appropriate use of land to support the sustainable economic, social and physical development of Ballina as an attractive location for enterprise, investment and a place to live, work and visit.
