Council adopted the Sunshine Coast Active Transport Plan 2011-2031 at its Ordinary Meeting on Wednesday 2 February 2011.


The Sunshine Coast Active Transport Plan 2011-2031 sets  an achievable vision, which sees walking and cycling playing an essential part in creating a sustainable transport system for the Sunshine Coast. The plan supports the Sunshine Coast Sustainable Transport Strategy and provides more detail on the planning and delivery of active transport priorities.


Walking and cycling will play an important transport role in the future. Increasingly, active transport will help deliver improved mobility, safer streets, healthier residents and reduced impact on global climate, all resulting in a world-class quality of life.


Following the adoption of the Plan, council has made progress on actions across the seven key priority areas. The Sunshine Coast Pedestrian & Cyclist Account 2012 is the first annual update reporting on that progress. The Account sets out the next steps for council based on performance and experience in the last year.

In 2012 council engaged the Australian Bicycle Council to undertake a survey to obtain accurate data on cycling participation by Sunshine Coast residents. The Cycling Participation Sunshine Coast Regional Council 2012 report outlines survey findings and provides comparisons with Queensland and Regional Queensland participation data.

These findings will provide a benchmark for measuring future progress for cycling. A summary of the major findings is also available.
