Veloways and footpaths make up a wonderful network for cyclists, walkers and dog exercisers to explore this great community. Veloways are a major feature across Aura and it is Stockland’s desire to create an outdoor activity environment for residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
As each stage of Aura comes into being, another network of pathways and veloways emerge for those seeking to enjoy the outdoors.
Stockland is a little restricted as it can only plan for new veloways and pathways on land that it owns.
In Baringa, Stockland has built a pathway which extends from the new playing fields just beside Baringa State Primary School and connects with Koala Court in Little Mountain.
It is around 200 metres from the new connection to Koala Court and the new pathway recently funded by Cr Baberowski which connects Grampion Drive/Crater St in Bellvista with Mantis Cres in Arbour which BeCA is keen to see connected.
There are some mitigating circumstances in as much as any proposed pathway connecting the two points would need to pass through a conservation area, probably cross a water course and be through an area where no current dirt pathways exist.
There may be some alternative options available but this seems the most logical.
But what a fantastic link this would create between Bellvista, Arbour and the new playing fields and Baringa State primary. Also it would create a major pathway link between the Koala Crt area and Unity College and Bellvista Market Place.
The meeting is scheduled for mid June.
