Published on Monday, 14 September 2020 at 6:41:28 AM


A huge thank you for those that participated in the recent mountain bike survey.

The survey closed last week and produced the following results:

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 382 local responses (one of the highest response figures for a Shire led survey)

 Around 93% of respondents said they were in support of a mountain bike development in Bindoon. This high level of support remained true across all respondent age groups and locations.

📊 The following features were most appealing (in order); 1. Mountain bike trails 2. Walking trails 3. Barbecue/picnic and summit point 4. Toilets/Showers 5. Additional co-located attractions 6. Caravan and accommodation facilities 7. Chairlift for people and bikes.

📅 65% want it built now, 14% in line with the Bindoon 'Heavy Haulage Route', 21% happy to wait until funding available

🚵‍♀️ A complete mountain bike and adventure park would be frequented 62% more, each year, than a few trails on the hill.

🤔 Concerns about impacts upon rates was highest with one-third of respondents saying this was of significant concern or greater. Other responses about development in other areas of the Shire, other potential projects and the environmental impact were noted too.

These summaries, and each individual response, have been compiled and will be presented to Council for their October ordinary council meeting.

In the meantime, keep a lookout for a major sport and recreation survey where this potential project will once again feature. We hope that you can keep engaged with us, as it will have hold significant consequence on where Shire resources will be focused in the coming years.
