With the increasing demand for trails across Western Australia, it is important that a high standard of trail development is maintained. The State Government supports trails initiatives through the planning and construction of sustainable trails.
The Trail Development Process (TDP) presents a guide to ensuring a high standard of planning and construction in Western Australian trail developments. The TDP is found in the Trail Development Series as Part A and consists of eight stages (it is sometimes referred to as the eight-stage process).
The vision of the TDP is:
Sustainable trails mean developing the right trails, in the right places, the right way and for the right reasons.
The TDP provides protocols and procedures which ensure that trails are a fit for purpose, sustainable asset. The TDP is made up of eight stages:
The Trail Planning Grants Program has been designed to support the principles of the TDP by providing financial support to organisations that adopt and implement the standardised methodology of the eight-stage TDP.
The purpose of the Trail Planning Grants Program is to ensure trail developments across the state are well informed, substantiated and supported by a consistent planning approach as outlined in the TDP of the Trail Development Series (Part A).
The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) is seeking applications from organisations for projects that support the progression of trail planning through a logical and consistent framework.
The program is aimed at local governments or incorporated organisations that have established strategic support for a trail development and are ready to commence a specific stage/s in the TDP. The process can also be applied to trails master planning
for specific geographical areas including regional, sub-regional and joint local government areas.
