Bemm River Draft Footpath Master Plan


East Gippsland Shire Council is currently preparing a Draft Footpath Master Plan for the Bemm River area.


During development of the Bemm River Urban Design Framework in 2007 the need for improved pedestrian access was identified as a key issue.  The more recent development of the Draft Foreshore Management Plan for the Bemm River area, it was again confirmed that pedestrian access is a key issue.


In response we are now developing a Draft Footpath Master Plan. This plan will direct the future footpath priorities for the Bemm River Township.


We are looking to gain any feedback on the proposals recommended in the Draft Plan and the public, either as individuals or as members of community groups, are invited to make written submissions by 14th March 2014.


Submissions are welcomed and can be submitted either by email or regular mail.


Email correspondence should contain ‘Draft Bemm River Footpath Master Plan Feedback’ in the email subject line, and be forwarded to or correspondence by regular mail should be addressed to:
