Yarra Council is calling for expressions of interest to join the Active Transport Advisory Committee

Friday 13 August 2021

We are seeking nominations from Yarra community members who would like to be part of the Active Transport Advisory Committee. 

The Active Transport Advisory Committee provides Council with advice to support its objective of reducing car dependency in the community and increasing the uptake of active transport throughout Yarra.

The committee provides recommendations to Council on self-powered and electronic modes of active transport, including: 

  • walking
  • jogging / running
  • bike riding
  • skateboarding / roller blading
  • scooters
  • electric assisted bicycles/scooters

Who are the committee members?

Eight community members will be appointed to the new committee. Members will be selected based on: 

  • capacity to consult and represent a wide range of views
  • ability to understand the needs of different active transport users
  • expertise and experience across different forms of active transport
  • a diverse gender and demographic mix

How long are the terms for committee members?

The normal length of appointments for this committee is four years, but because the committee is new, we plan to offer half of the successful applicants a two-year term.

When you fill out the form please indicate whether you would be prepared to accept a two year term if that is what is offered.

When and where will the meetings take place?

Meetings will take place once every three months and will be held in person. There is also the potential for some meetings to be conducted online. 

How do I get involved? 

If you would like to be involved as a community representative, please fill out the Expression of Interest form and email to [email protected]
