TRANSPORT OPTIONS
It is intended that this information will be useful for all sectors of our community but it has been specifically written with the follow- ing principles:
ACCESSIBILITY
Specifically this pamphlet is intended to provide information about transport options for the aged, infirmed, isolated and disadvantaged.
It is acknowledged that there are many within our community that, for a number of reasons, require support in accessing transport either travelling within the Shire of accessing services and facilities further afield in places such as Albany and Perth.
GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS ABATEMENT
In keeping with Council’s desire to minimise the impact of our community’s emissions contributing towards climate change, it is hoped that the transport options within this document will en- able reduction of green house gas emissions by encouraging more viable transport options such as public transport and maximising the number of passengers in vehicles.

  • Hello Donald,

Thanks for your time on the phone earlier, it's great to be in contact with you.

As explained, I'm arranging a cycling-related family fun day event on 20th May at a picnic spot close to Springdale Beach.

The aim of the event is to launch a new cycle shelter, named after Charlie Smith who established a holiday retreat at what will be the event location in the 1920s.

I would love to invite a group of young cyclists from Transition Kwoorabup Denmark to be involved in the launch please.

Could you please nominate 4 young people (ages 6-15) who would be willing to represent your group and to greet the Minister as he arrives by bicycle at a specially arranged pitstop.

These 4 young people would need to be on location by 12noon so I can usher them safely to the pitstop and have them ready in place. There will be a photographer present and we have invited the local paper.

All of the members of your cycling group are welcome to attend the Family Fun Day which will take place from 1pm-230pm.
